Oranga Tamariki boss refuses to resign amid criticism

Oranga Tamariki's chief executive Grainne Moss is digging in, refusing to resign in the face of stiff criticism.

Yet another scathing report into the agency was released this week - and the new Minister for Children Kelvin Davis has refused to express confidence in her leadership.

The Waitangi Tribunal's own inquiry into Oranga Tamariki convened in Wellington today, where Grainne Moss conceded for the first time publicly that structural racism exists within the agency.

But she says she's still has work to do.
