Michael Laws speaks to Olivia Carville, journalist from The Christchurch Press about the story of Shanita Araipu and her family.
The single mother used to reside in a house nextdoor to murdered Jason Somerville. Shanita's family home burnt down in 2009 and they lost their second house to the February 2011 earthquake.
Her story generated a wave of response yesterday, though most comments were about the number of children Shanita has, rather than her housing situation.
She is due to meet with a ministry official today after the Ministry of Maori Affairs stepped in to help her situation.
