Winston Peters has been given a matai (chiefly) name. The name is Vaovasamanaia made up of three major concepts vao; “vegetation”, vasa, “the sea” and manaia “beautiful, handsome, awesome, delighted and joyful”.
So he is a very handsome sea vegetable?
I guess Winston is just glad they didn’t give him a Taito title. Taito Winston Peters would not go down well!
