Madonna Fires Back Against Malawian Government's Protest

In a statement released by the head of Global Philanthropy Group, it is explained that all charity projects for the impoverished nation have been discussed with local officials first.


A representative of Global Philanthropy Group has responded to Malawian government's protest about Madonna's plans to build 10 schools in the impoverished African nation. Trevor Neilson said there is no truth in the accusation that Madonna skipped the necessary authorization and discussion of her projects for Malawi.

"This is simply not true," Neilson said in a statement released by Madonna's spokesperson. "The government of Malawi has been fully updated on Madonna's effort to provide funding for ten schools to be built in communities where there are no schools." Neilson also said that Madonna's Raising Malawi organization had communicated with Malawi's Minister of Education. Non-profit organization buildOn had also cleared all plans for school construction with the local officials.

Malawi's Ministry of Education spokeswoman Lindiwe Chide was complaining of Madonna not informing them about the scrapped plans for a girls academy due to an alleged mismanagement of funds. "Now she decides to announce that she plans to build 10 schools without getting authority from us again," Chide said. "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," Chide told Reuters. "She first needed to consult us, get permission from us before doing anything."
