    Madonna is to compensate the local people of Chinkhota village of Malawi with £70,000
    after their houses were destroyed to make room for her Raising Malawi Academy for girls.

    The £9 million school project that has started to take shape made 200 villagers lose
    their land, according to AfricaNews reporter.

    However villagers that were evacuated are not happy with the money they are being
    offered as compensation. One of them Amos Mkuyu, said he was given just 200,000
    Malawi Kwacha (£850) for three hectares of land, mango trees and three dwellings.

    “My sisters and I inherited this land from our parents, whose parents have been here
    for over a hundred years. How can I get only K200, 000 (850 pounds),” the Daily Express quoted Mkuyu.

    The Madonna invasion part 2, eh? I don't know when Black folks gone raise holy hell about outsiders coming in and laying roots. If they are concerned about the money, just wait 'til they see what's on the curriculum/agenda...smh.

    What if she'd started a school for boys?....would her agenda have been any less questionable? Point is...Black folks need to cease and desist relinquishing care of our children (female AND male) to folks who have a history of suppressing and oppressing us. It's bad enough many of us here are often in a bind where the issue is concerned, but continental folks sho nuff have no excuse.

    I agree.

    Oh, that just makes me so angry. The implications are loud...Conquer and divide. While it's true that we should not allow this kind of trick whether it's a school for girls or boys, I can see the implications of how 'they' are trying to put the blame about 'the hardship of African girls' on our own men'. It's really disgusting.
