Controversy on Madonna's adoption of African baby
The row over Madonna's adoption of an African baby is refusing to die down. The father of the 13-month-old David Banda has come out in support of the singer. Yohane Banda appeared in a Malawi court room as human rights groups attempted to block the adoption process. Mr Banda said he could not understand why anyone was unhappy about the superstar adopting his child. "If he is brought back it will be bad for me and my family because we can't afford to look after him," he said. The coalition of rights groups says the government broke its own laws which forbid adoption of any Malawian child by a non-resident. Madonna brought the child to her luxury London home and has given a number of television interviews hitting back at her critics.
