Remember to during her voyage to Malawi Madonna has written a letter to Malawi's President, Joyce Banda. Only today, Joyce Banda criticizes Madonna for her coming to Malawi, with a very bad faith. 


Joyce Banda (Malawai President)...

"She just came unannounced and proceeded to villages and made poor people dance for her. And immigration officials opened the VIP lounge for her just because previously she enjoyed the VIP status". 

In 2011, Madonna, who has reportedly spent over $11 million of her own money on Malawian projects since 2006, suddenly canceled plans to build an all-girls school, in favor of erecting 10 community schools.

In 2012, President Banda spoke to The Telegraph, saying...

"Madonna came to Malawi to build a school, an academy like the one Oprah (Winfrey) build in South Africa, but she changed her mind. I have a problem with a lot of things around the adoption of the children and the changing of the mind and then coming back to build community schools. I don’t want to discuss that, I don’t want that to be top of my agenda because it doesn’t matter. It’s something she offered to do and she has changed her mind – that’s fine. Malawi is a free nation, we cannot bar anyone from coming. She’s not interested in investing any more – she has closed her offices in Malawi. We have accepted her position, we respect her decision and I personally don’t have any further comment about it.”
