Madonna in Malawi with her adopted kids: Mutharika restores her VVIP status

Madonna has returned with  the two children she adopted from Malawi  and her other son for surprise talks with Mutharika.

UK’s Daily Mail reported that the singer’s visit will fuel speculation the star is looking to adopt another child after she posted pictures online today showing her playing with young Malawian children, apparently at an orphanage.

Madonna, who funds orphanages in the country and is helping to build schools and hospitals, was unceremoniously sent packing in April last year after a dispute with ex-president Joyce Banda.

Banda was quoted as slamming her for “making poor people dance for her” and that she was a “arrogant” and “bully”.

However, President Mutharika, who was elected in May polls, has restored Madonna’s VVIP status and wants to give her support for  philanthropist work in the impoverished country.

State House press secretary Frederick Ndala said: ‘We welcome Madonna as guest of the government and people of Malawi.

Ndala added: “The President appreciates the charity work she is doing for the people of Malawi.’

Madonna is scheduled to hold talks with President Mutharika on Friday at his official Kamuzu Palace in the capital, Lilongwe.

Madonna’s 12-member travelling party is believed to include sons Roco John Ritchie and David Banda and daughter Mercy Chifundo James.

While David’s adoption was smooth, a judge initially rejected Madonna’s adoption of Mercy on the grounds that billionaire star has not continuously lived in Malawi for two years prior to the adoption as required by law.

It took Malawi’s Supreme Court to okay the adoption describing the 1949 laws as archaic.

In her statement to the court, Madonna promised to be bringing her adopted children twice “every two or three years”.

The singer’s relationship with Malawi began in 2006 with David’s adoption, but soured after a report accused many of the local staff running her Raising Malawi charity of financial impropriety.
