The High Court in Lilongwe is to set the date when it will rule whether US Pop star Madonna should adopt two more children from Malawi.
Madonna briefly appeared before Judge Fiona Mwale in the chamber at High court in Lilongwe on Wednesday morning to adopt the children who sources claim are twins aged four.
While the pop star’s lawyer Titus Mvalo was noncommittal on the matter, Judiciary spokesperson Mlenga Mvula has confirmed that Madonna made the application.
“She had made an application to the court and the court will scrutinise her petition to see whether to give an okay or not. The written application is expressing her intentions to adopt the two children and was made by her lawyer Titus Mvalo,” he said.
However, Mvula could not shed more on details of the children as regards age and gender.
“It will be premature if we could divulge such information now. It will be proper and good when the court makes determination on the matter,” he explained.
According to Lilongwe High Court Deputy Registrar, Violet Chipawo, “the court has heard the application and [it] has been adjourned for a ruling on later date. It has not been indicated.”
Chipawo said she did not have any further details concerning the children.
This is Madonna’s third adoption bid as the material girl has succeeded in having David and Mercy as her children in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
Madge silently arrived in Malawi yesterday around noon and according to sources at Kamuzu International Airport, she came with her two Malawian children. n
