Malawi government blocking Madonna’s charity

The dream of American Pop Singer Madonna to carry out a number of charitable works in Malawi will remain in jeopardy if what a local newspaper has reported is anything to go by that the board of Non-Governmental organizations (NGO) has turn down an application by the pop star to have her Trust registered in Malawi.
Madonna is linked to be the brain behind Raising Malawi Trust though other reports indicate that she is just one of the trustees.
The Sunday Times newspaper has quoted an undisclosed source from the Civil Society community in Malawi who has revealed that the Joyce Banda government is deliberately frustrating any moved by Madonna attributing the whole scenario as “bad blood” between President Joyce Banda and Madonna.
“From the look of things, Madonna’s work in the country will continue facing challenges as long as the current administration continues to call the shots” the source is quoted as saying.
The source further claimed that some top government officials have been pressing the NGO board not to accept Madonna’s application.
Board Chairperson for NGO’s Board in Malawi Emily Banda has since turned down the claims and revealed that Madonna own no single NGO in Malawi but rather is one of the trustees of a number of NGO’s including the Raising Malawi Trust.
“Let me mention that Madonna the musician does not have an NGO that applied for registration; rather, Madonna is one of the trustees in several organizations that applied for registration. One that I call that we have not registered is Raising Malawi Trust,” Banda told the paper.
She claimed that the trust failed to meet the required registration requirements.
The NGO chief  however could not completely rule out Raising Trust Malawi, saying they still stand a chance if they bring forward the other required documents.
Meanwhile, 380 NGO’S have been registered according to Banda.
She has however asked all registered NGO’s to always comply with the country’s registration laws and failing which they will be fined or completely turned down.

    Lets’ not forget , all these charities are tax deductible;You see in Malawi you dont get anywhere opening your legs, maybe she should wear her grills when she goes to meetings with these people.

    • meeeeeehhhh!!!! baaaaaa!!!

      People like you who don’t focus on an artists large body of work but say things like “you dont get anywhere opening your legs” make you come across as a bit creepy.

      Get outside your village and stop bonking the cows on your farm.

    Wow. Whether they like her or not, she’s only trying to help people in true need. Ridiculous that they would block her efforts to help people who aren’t being helped by their own government!!

    What a desaster. The charity catered for Madonna’s Ego rather than helping the poor. And they lost 4 million of donated $$$ which is unacceptable.

      day4night always has a hard-on for negative Madonna stories.

        The guy sounds like a dweeb. I wonder what his beef is, it surely is weird as f*ck to be such a negative nancy when it comes to a woman who truly wants to help …

        Says a lot about the (I’m assuming) guy, a little pedantic generic c*nt in real life, I’m sure (honestly). :D

        u r absolutely right. I just love to celebrate Madonna’s Failures. There are so many, each totally entertaining.

    • Thank You

      “desaster” lol

      I love how certain spelling mistakes are so telling and informational.

      • day4night

        my spelling was intentional. Madonna’s failed “charity” deserves a new word, Desaster.

        Oh well, who cares.. Madonna sure doesn’t. She has found many a Worthy Cause since Malawi

    Reading this post really making me sad and frustrated with some people’s behavior of ‘unthankful’ with other people’s help. As the article mentioned, Madonna is the brain behind all those charitable project, and I bet that they’re own people of Malawi have no initiative to help among themselves, so personally.. Madonna should stop helping them as they are all lazy, unthankful, never appreciate of people’s help, so… what’s the point? If I were Madonna I would definitely demolish all the buildings that I had built in that country, and choose other country that might really need help. No matter what, we CAN’t help them… (Verily never will God change the condition of a people until they change it themselves (Ar-Ra’d verse 11) Amen.
