It was a diverse group of prospective new New Zealand citizens who gathered together at the New Zealand High Commissioner’s official residence yesterday to take the oath and swear allegiance to New Zealand and Her Majesty The Queen.

Hailing from as near and far as Kiribati, Fiji, America, Canada, France, Ireland and Great Britain, the 11 new citizens proudly recited their oaths and allegiances in front of New Zealand High Commissioner Peter Marshall and their own family, friends and other supporters.

We’ll have more on yesterday’s New Zealand citizenship ceremony and more photos in tomorrow’s edition of CINews.
