Although American Pop star Madonna vehemently rejected that she is in the country to adopt two twins namely Stella and Esther, Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare spokesperson Lucy Bandazi confirmed of the development in an interview with Dailymail.
Madonna who sneaked in the country secretly was on Wednesday spotted at Lilongwe High Court filing for an adoption bid for two Children.
The development was confirmed by Judicial Spokesperson Mlenga Mvula in an interview just after the court session.
The reports then went viral on social media with others questioning the move, forcing the pop star to dismiss claims, saying she is in the country to inspect her charity work projects.
“The rumours of an adoption process are untrue.
“I am in Malawi to check on the children’s hospital in Blantyre and my other work with Raising Malawi and then heading home,” Madonna was quoted as saying in the Dailymail.
But Bandazi has contradicted Madonna by saying all the paperwork for an adoption has been submitted and the application was being carefully considered.
“Madonna has lodged an application with the High Court to adopt two girls. They are aged four years old,” she said.
“All the necessary paperwork is before the High Court and they will make the ultimate decision if the adoption can go ahead.”
Madonna first adopted David Banda from an orphanage in 2006 and Mercy James in 2009.
