Malawian Adoption Official: 'Madonna Should Convince Courts, Not Public'

MADONNA's efforts to win over the people of Malawi to support another adoption bid are useless - because the decision ultimately lies with a high court judge, a government official has declared.
The pop superstar recently confirmed reports she is thinking about adopting a second child from the African country after welcoming little David Banda into her family in 2006. His adoption was officially signed off in 2008.
Madonna recently told the country's Nation newspaper, "It's something I have been considering, but would only do if I had the support of the Malawian people and the Government.
"Many people - especially our Malawian friends - say that David should have a Malawian brother or sister. It is a big priority for me to educate my son about the world, but always to stay connected to his Malawian culture."
But Cyrus Jeke, a spokesman for the Ministry of Child and Women Development, insists her focus should be strictly directed to the courts, because the Malawian public will have no say in the adoption.
He says, "It's not pre-conceived. A high court judge must be convinced about the adoption."
Madonna was alleged to be in the process of adopting a young girl named Mercy James last year (08), but the reports never came to fruition.
