Malawi Officials Blast Madonna's School Plans

Malawi Officials Blast Madonna's School Plans
3/16/2012 3:32 PM ET

The Malawi government has struck out in opposition against Madonna's proposal to build 10 schools, saying they are "fed up" with her.

Officials say she has been inconsistent in her efforts after scrapping her original plans and not consulting them on her new plans.

"Now she decides to announce that she plans to build 10 schools without getting authority from us again," said Malawi's education minister. "We now feel like this is all about propping up her global image and not in our interest."

"This is simply not true," Trevor Neilson, the head of the Global Philanthropy Group, said in a statement released by Madonna's spokesperson. "The government of Malawi has been fully updated on Madonna's effort to provide funding for ten schools to be built in communities where there are no schools."
