No meeting between Madiba and Madonna
Madonna will not meet South Africa’s former president Nelson Mandela, his office said today.
“There was never any meeting scheduled between the two. They will not be meeting tomorrow,” said a receptionist at Mandela’s office who declined to be named.
The Sunday Times reported that Madonna would during her visit to Malawi pop over to meet Madiba in South Africa on Friday.
Madonna is in Malawi to continue her charity work with the Raising Malawi organisation and to allow her adopted son David Banda to visit his home country.
Media reports also suggested that Madonna wanted to adopt a second child, allegations which the pop star has denied.
Madonna, 48, caused a storm last year when she went to Malawi to adopt the one-year-old boy.
Adoption groups accused her of using her celebrity status to bypass laws about foreigners adopting from Malawi.
