US superstar Madonna is set to adopt two four-year-old twin girls from Malawi on Tuesday, a court official in Lilongwe told AFP, taking the number of children she has adopted from the country to four.
According to judicial spokesman Mlenga Mvula, speaking tot AFP;
“I can confirm that Madonna has been granted an adoption order for two children,”
On January 24, local media reports said the singer appeared before Justice Fiona Mwale, accompanied by two unidentified children and several other people, before being driven away in an SUV vehicle.
But according to Madonna speaking to US magazine People on the same day said;
“The rumors of an adoption process are untrue.”
Madonna, who set up a charity called Raising Malawi in the southern African nation in 2006 and funded a surgical unit for children at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Blantyre, the commercial hub of Malawi, adopted Malawian children David Banda in 2006 and Mercy James in 2009.
