Madonna stripped of VIP status during visit to Malawi


Pop sensation Madonna was stripped of her VIP status during her recent visit to Malawi following incidents occurring between the singer and the Malawian government.

During her visit Madonna had sent a hand written letter scrawled on a piece of paper to the Malawian President Joyce Banda.

The letter had congratulated the president on her election back in April 2012 but included a number of errors.

Banda had not accepted the offer but had instead criticised the singer for not keeping her word and building 10 schools in the country without government consent.

According to BBC, Malawi’s Eunice Kazembe the country’s Minister of Education denied the construction of schools, “She has built classrooms at existing schools… really it’s a difference in terminology,” the minister said.

The minister although grateful of the assistance from Madonna mentioned protocol must be observed.

Back in 2011 Madonna announced plans worth $15 million towards building the Raising Malawi Academy for Girls, an institute set to be able to accommodate up to 400 students. Following financial mismanagement the project was called off and Madonna had instead announced she would be building 10 schools in the country.

Madonna had visited Malawi with her two adopted children from the country as well, visiting the orphanage of her two kids Daivd and Mercy James and the 10 school blocks she had funded for.

During her departure Madonna and her entourage were deprived of the VIP status and had to go through all ordinary check in procedures before being able to board her own private jet.
