Pop Star Madonna’s adoption of a Malawian child has taken a new turn. Now Human rights organizations will assist whether Madonna is fit to adopt a Malawian child.
Judge Andrew Nyirenda on Wednesday allowed human rights organizations to challenge the interim adoption of one year old Malawian kid. The coalition of 67 rights groups will now decide whether pop star Madonna is fit to adopt one year old David Banda.
The rights groups had argued that the immediate granting of the interim adoption order violated Malawi’s decades-old ban on adoptions by non-residents.
Madonna and her hubby Guy Ritchie on October 12 were granted permission to take initial custody of David Banda and the pair was allowed to take Banda to their London home.
Judge Andrew Nyirenda said,
The applicants have made it clear that they would not be commenting on the facts, but only critical areas of law because of the importance of the matters under consideration so that appropriate jurisprudence be developed for future guidance.
The human rights groups have argued that Malawi needs to ensure the adoption process cannot be exploited by pedophiles or child traffickers.
Adoption of a Malawian kid has turned into a challenge for pop star Madonna. Pop star also wanted to adopt a baby girl from the same Malawian David Banda’s village. But I think now she has to drop the idea. In my view she is giving home and better life to orphan kids and that should be appreciated.
