The Jeffrey Epstein scandal opened people’s eyes to corruption among the elites.
His clients still have not been brought to justice.
Now a pop diva could be under investigation for one disturbing sex crime.
Popstar Madonna is under fire regarding an orphanage she owns in the East African nation of Malawi.
A charitable organization believes that her orphanage could be involved in human trafficking.
“A charitable organization called the Ethiopian World Federation (EWF) asked the government of Malawi this week to investigate another charity, Raising Malawi, for human trafficking, sexual exploitation, fraud, and exposing children to ‘homosexual and transgender’ propaganda. Raising Malawi was founded by 1980s pop star Madonna Louise Ciccone, better known as simply Madonna. The EWF was founded in New York in 1937 to help Ethiopians who settled abroad, especially by protecting them from exploitation and fraud. The group’s portfolio eventually expanded to cover other African populations and the Caribbean…Madonna adopted four children from Malawi beginning in the 2000s, occasionally fighting tempestuous battles against Malawian officials who said she did not meet the adoption requirements, such as residency in Malawi for at least 18 continuous months. Malawian critics accused the singer of using her phenomenal wealth and influence to ‘bully’ government officials and demand ‘VIP treatment.’”
Back in 2017, people were concerned that Madonna’s adoption of four-year-old twin girls could set a dangerous precedent, even after she adopted her children David Banda and Mercy James in 2006 and 2009 respectively.
Maxwell Matewere, head of Malawian children’s advocacy charity Eye of the Child, said at the time, “We are really putting our children in a big danger…(Madonna’s act) definitely would facilitate trafficking of children through (encouraging more) adoption.”
The EWF petitioned Malawian president Lazarus Chakwera to “restrict [Madonna] and her associates accessibility to Africa and to African children as a precautionary measure until a thorough investigation is done into child trafficking, sex exploitation, sexual slavery, adoption reversal, threat of coercion, fraud, deception and abuse of power or vulnerability.”
The Nyasa Times reported that the “petition further says the ‘psychology behind her ability to release child pornography, religious imagery, bestiality and vulgar pornography has prompted her to open an orphanage in Malawi named ‘Raising Malawi’ in 2006 to host social experiments on vulnerable African children in Malawi’…Madonna is being accused of using David Banda ‘for sexual exploitation and social experiments today’…Pictures are awash on social media of David Banda wearing female clothes, makeup and wearing earrings — whilst the two holding hands like two lovers.”

Matewere of Eye of the Child added back in 2017, “Most of the adoption cases that have been allowed by social welfare and the high court have been questionable in terms of the processes. There is a lot of corruption…The Madonna adoption would basically just open up for more children to be recruited. You are sending a wrong signal to the orphanages.”
It’s yet to be seen if a formal investigation will actually be opened, but the international adoption procedure could certainly use more scrutiny.
