From Checkpoint, 6:07 pm on 21 January 2020

The head of Whānau Ora is warning the policy's Minister Peeni Henare that if he continues to allow government agencies to dip into their funding, he can kiss Māori progress goodbye.

It comes as distinguished Māori leaders seek an urgent Waitangi Tribunal hearing over the government's handling of Whānau Ora funding.
