Madonna is in Malawi but ...

Monday, March 30, 2009

Its all over that Madonna is in Malawi trying to adopt another baby from Malawi. But wait a minute! If you are in Malawi you will agree with me that her visit to Malawi is not any news right here in Malawi. Ask many people on the streets and villages in Malawi they will tell you that they do not even know that there is a woman known as Madonna currently visiting Malawi to adopt some kid in the country.

I have checked today's daily papers in Malawi - the Daily Times and the Malawi Nation newspaper, they have not even featured any story about Madonna's visit. Listening to different radio stations, it seems none is even reporting about this except MIJ FM radio which featured this story in one of their evening news bulletins yesterday. Surprisingly, MIJ FM radio was also quoting an AFP report.

So please give us a break on Madonna! Instead of trying to show her 'charity' by picking cute babies from Malawi, Madonna should emulate the good example of Oprah Winfrey who built a girls school in South Africa. Otherwise, Madonna's visit is not news to some of us.

I hope many in Malawi would agree with me that the forthcoming general election on 19th May 2009 is the one making news headlines now. This election is important to Malawians as it will determine leaders who shall continue the 'onslaught' against poverty in Malawi as the current government of Dr Bingu wa Mutharika is doing.

So, once again, please give us a break on Madonna and her adoption issues!

I'm Francesca from Rome-Italy
Well, you are right writing this, it's a shame that half prints in the world talk about gossip! While around the world there are so many important things to talk about!
Regards to your country which I'm not yet visited, but I will one day because of my deep love for Africa!

Well said Francesca! There is so much trivia and gossip even on the web.

In addition to this, one wonders if adopting individual children is the best solution to the orphan crisis that has affected Malawi and other African countries.

I really do not think Madonna should be allowed to adopt children from Malawi.

She has more than enough money to give lots of children a better life in the country of their ancestors.

It's wrong just to pick out a child a whip it away from everything it knows..

Just my point of view..

Well said Bennett, instead of taking one child from Malawi Madona should something that benefit children in the orphaneges that she is taking these kids from.

In fact why should Malawi have diferent laws because it's Madona adopting a child? Law is law.

I'm Zimbabwean and I know how life is in Southern African countries. We need people who support development of communities.

Absolutely beautiful! That is the harmony, the African people have, that we Westerner's don't have.

Yet I understand, I am clear on it!

Thank you m'friend

Bright Blessings Always!
