MADONNA got slammed by the government of Malawi… after she announced that she wanted to build ten schools for underprivileged kids in the country.
Are they being ungrateful?
Well, disenchanted is more like it. The Malawi government has probably had it with the Material Girl’s broken promises, because the last time Madonna said she was going to build schools in the impoverished country, she ended up abandoning the project, blaming the alleged poor leadership and greed of the people she entrusted to get it done.
Earlier this year—about a year after scrapping plans to build a school for girls near Lilongwe, Malawi—Madge announced that she was planning to pick up where she left off and build ten schools in Malawi.
Unfortunately, Malawi officials have had enough.
Lindiwe Chide, Malawi’s Ministry of Education spokeswoman, has announced that the Malawi government is “fed up” with Madonna, especially after the singer failed to inform them when she discarded her plans to create a girls’ school in Malawi last year.
She told Reuters:
“Now she decides to announce that she plans to build 10 schools without getting authority from us again. We now feel like this is all about propping up her global image and not in our interest.”
“She has no mandate to decide where she wants to build a school because she doesn’t know our needs and where we want new schools… she first needed to consult us, get permission from us before doing anything.”
What do you think? Is the Malawi government justified in blasting Madge?
