TV presenter sparks race row in New Zealand

New Zealand, 5.10.2010 14:17, (ROMEA)

Popular Kiwi TV presenter Paul Henry caused offence yesterday after questioning the credentials of the Governor General, Sir Anand Satyanand,who was born and raised in New Zealand to Fijian-Indian parents. Mr Henry has since apologized,noting that he did not intend to be racist.

Henry asked Prime Minister John Key, whom he had in mind to replace the governor general when his 5 year term ends next August.Voxy News reported Henry as stating "Is he even a New Zealander?" Henry further stated, "Are you going to choose a New Zealander who looks and sounds like a New Zealander this time... Are we going to go for someone who is more like a New Zealander this time?"

Though the presenter has since apologised to Sir Satyanand, his apology has done nothing but stir further outrage when he referred to himself as a half-gypo (gypsy) in a statement that was mean to be an apology.

Mr Henry has since been suspended without pay until October 18.
