What more can Tāme Mandela

What more can Tāme Mandela say that Mandiba has not already said? 

"I have done my duty to Tūhoe and to Aotearoa. I have no doubt that posterity will pronounce that I was innocent and that the criminals that should have been brought before this court are the members of the Clarke and Key governments."

"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the Maori people. I have fought against white domination. I have cherised the idea of a Tūhoe Nation in which the Tangata Whenua have Tino Rangatiratanga --- Maori Soveriengty!  It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die!"
