Corrective Services minister George ‘Maggie’ Angene is recovering well after three days in an Auckland hospital this week.

Angene, who fell ill during Parliament, is in New Zealand for medical treatment before taking a tour of the prisons in the North Island.

The ‘Action Man’ was to visit New Zealand for an official engagement next week, but opted to go a week earlier for health reasons.

The medical checkup was recommended by the local doctors following two visits to Rarotonga Hospital last week.

Angene’s chief executive officer Terry Rangi said: “The minister has probably taken too much of workload and needs to slow down a bit. He needs a bit of time to relax from his ministerial responsibilities and all the community work he does.

Rangi said Corrective Services secretary Tai Joseph has joined the minister for a North Island prison tour. “The minister is enjoying a good rest this week before he embarks on an official engagement with New Zealand Prisons.”
