New Zealand First says facts show that criminal gangs are planning to grow their illegal drug cartels by using funding from the Government’s seriously flawed Whanau Ora scheme.
New Zealand First has obtained documents which show Whanau Ora funding is being used on immigrants with substance abuse issues who are in the country illegally.

New Zealand First has accused the Maori Party of waffling about inanities over the seriously flawed Whanau Ora scheme which fails to tackle the big issues facing Maori.
New Zealand First says the four-year jail sentence of a Dunedin gang member who syphoned $20,000 of Whanau Ora money to buy cannabis is further proof that the scheme should be scrapped.
New Zealand First says the latest report into Whanau Ora confirms it is wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on a scheme which provides little more than money for family reunions.
