Kelvin Davis to

Oranga Tamariki: please explain

Children’s Minister Kelvin Davis has asked Oranga Tamariki to “please explain” its actions after a Newsroom investigation into Māori children being taken away from Pākehā foster parents who had provided them with a permanent home.

Davis told Newsroom he had watched most of the video - a change from his predecessor Tracey Martin, who refused to watch a previous Newsroom investigation into a child uplift - and had already called Oranga Tamariki officials into his office on Thursday morning for a “please explain”.

“I was disturbed by what I saw - it was absolutely heartbreaking.”

Davis had subsequently requested an urgent briefing on the case and the ministry’s approach.
