There are very different and varied reactions to Malawi's Highest Court ruling that granted pop star Madonna permission to adopt a second Malawian Child "Mercy" James Chifundo !Whereas many Malawians greeted the news with jubilation noting that the child may now be granted an opportunity that would normally be beyond her reach and wildest dream! However Human Rights activist are treating the issue as a classic case of Child Trafficking...etc .
Morally and on an economic viewpoint, i believe the girl has a better chance of making a meaning out of her life if adopted by Madonna.Had she been in Kenya she would have been added like 10 more!
The case was heard in a background whereby a certain Mr James Kambewa was claiming paternity of the child and indicating a willingness to take care of the child whereby it became apparent that he was not there during the mothers pregnancy nor did he even attend her funeral.Perhaps he saw an opportunity to cash in, how sad!
Malawian Chief Justice Lovemore Munlo, reading the three-judge appeal court panel's ruling on Friday, said Madonna had demonstrated a histry of genuine concern and in his words she was "intelligent, compassionate, articulate and determined since the early age of 6 when her mother died the Court also noted that Madonna was in Malawi not by chance by intention clearly evinced by the charities she has set up to assist orphaned children.Perhaps the phrase that carried the day was " In this global village a man can have more than one place at which he resides," .Her philanthropic gestures are welcome though i believe in light of her videos, she still wishes she was a teenager.Dressed up all skimpy but now with wrinkles....well that's my two cents on the issue.
