- former Mongrel Mob member
Modern gangs are recruiting new members with "starter packs", a former gang member claims.
Wi Turei Waikari, who was a Mongrel Mob member, said in his day a leather jacket and a pair of gumboots was all gang members needed.
He told Te Ao with Moana that modern gangs are now using a range of attractions to lure rangatahi into gang life.
