Newshub can reveal Children’s Minister Kelvin Davis has ordered an immediate halt to ‘reverse uplifts’ – when children in state care are taken away from their foster parents and placed with whānau.
It comes as Oranga Tamariki boss Grainne Moss clings to her job despite the Children’s Minister now questioning some system-wide processes within the agency.
This was the only option open to Davis.
Oranga Tamariki have cleverly censored the Newsroom investigation on reverse uplifts because they know that once pakeha NZ understands what was happening, there wil be political outrage.
NO ONE told Davis that Newsroom had published this damning new Oranga Tamariki documentary where OT staff are now stealing Māori children off white step families AFTER TELLING the kids this was a ‘forever home’. The white elderly couple who had opened up their lives to these young children, SOLD THEIR HOUSE to buy a bigger one for these kids after they had been told the placement was permanent!
I mean, if you wanted a more damaging incendiary device in NZ politics, you would need to plant a pipe bomb in a vegan kindergarten!
Oranga Tamariki, terrified that their despicable uplift program is getting them in trouble with their new political masters are now investigating all previous placements, finding the new families are ‘too white’ and now – DESPITE TELLING THE KIDS AND CARERS THAT THIS PLACEMENT WAS PERMANENT, and Oranga Tamariki are just stealing them back!!!
These despicable, arse covering, Wellington bureaucrats are just jaw dropping in their venal self preservation skills aren’t they?
Kelvin had to shut down the reverse uplifts when he understood how utterly corrupted the process was.
He needs to sack her, there’s no other political response now.
Whatever the severance package is, it’s worth it just to gain the pretence that the Government have managed to tackle this rampaging neoliberal welfare experiment.
