Correction: Dame Jenny Shipley

In a story entitled “Winston still hasn’t forgiven Jenny Shipley for breaking police promise”, we reported assertions made by Winston Peters that Dame Jenny Shipley failed school certificate twice and was responsible for the failure of Mainzeal. 

Dame Jenny passed school certificate on her first attempt while a student at Marlborough Girls College and went on to qualify as a teacher before commencing her business and political career. 

Dame Jenny, while a former director of Mainzeal, was not responsible for Mainzeal’s failure when Mainzeal was placed into receivership and later into liquidation as a result of the withdrawal of shareholder support. 

Newshub apologises to Dame Jenny for publishing these false statements.
