FTFA "She has no mandate to decide where she wants to build a school because she doesn't know our needs and where we want new schools ... she first needed to consult us, get permission from us before doing anything".

'Cuz if there is one thing the Malawi government is excellent at it is taking care of its people.

There's just something really obnoxious about being photographed doing "white man's burden" work in 3rd world shiat holes while wearing all white.

Speak for yourself, subby. I've been tired of her since the 1980's.

Is it ironic that Madonna's 'Like a Prayer' came up on my player just before I saw the headline.

I guess it fits, both cases she is stirring up controversy with a black man.

Wow. Something about middle age makes women just totally pointless and useless, doesn't it ?

Not only is she jealous of Angelina - she wanted to outdo Sarah Palin, too.

Stay classy, babe.

She is striking the pose.

I'm guessing "consult with us" is code for "pay us our bribe money."

From TFA:

"Malawi's government on Tuesday accused Madonna of not consulting over her plans to build 10 new schools in the poor southern African state..."

Translation: The proper bribes were not forthcoming.

This. Sounds like they want more of a kickback and Madonna's not playing along.

This, plus one. Malawi was a PR stunt and from day one and even those poor farkers are sick of her posturing, ego-buffing shiat...As are we all.

I agree this is about her ego as much as anything, but "those poor farkers" are corrupt as shiat. NOT giving them money is the correct choice.

If Madonna wants to be edgy and become relevant again, I suggest she take her show to some place like Iran...

What's with all these celebrities poking around in Africa?

I'm not a Madonna fan, but as the article indicates the Malawai government is under fire for their police crackdown of anti-government posters and their criticism of Madonna just reeks of political bullshait.

Sounds like she's playing hardball with them over bribes. Good on her.

My experience with development work unfortunately corroborates the general assertion that "African governments are utterly corrupt and everything runs on bribes and skimming funds." Of course, I'm also of the mind that one could say "African governments are utterly corrupt and everything runs on bribes and skimming funds" and still be more or less correct...

When building a school in a 3rd world shiat hole, the last thing you should do is consult with ANYONE in that country. Its a shiat hole for a reason.

Malawi was my least favorite of the Hawaiian Islands.

Yeah, but some places have the decency to pretend otherwise.
