Penstone Kilembe was the child expert from Malawi assigned to review Madonna's adoption of David Banda. The Daily Mail reports that he has now been banned from reviewing the case, because the Child Welfare Board feels that he's become too close to Madonna after she paid for his plane ticket from Africa to London.
The Minister told the Malawi News, "We have already contacted Madonna that someone else and not Kilembe will come to assess her, because we feel Mr Kilembe personalised the whole issue when other people can go."
Penstone said that this decision may result in David being sent back to his village in Africa.
He said, "What this means is that the whole adoption process may crumble and David is sent back to his village."
Penstone's testimony at the final hearing for Madonna and David Banda was going to be crucial to the case. The Minister feels that with Madonna funding Penstone's trip it looks like she's trying to "buy" a favorable review.
Lame. Just let the kid stay with her. I'm sure sitting in a multi-million dollar London mansion is much more comfortable than sitting on a mat in the middle of the African desert with mosquitos buzzing around your ass.
Madonna is a dumbass for paying for the dude's ticket in the first place. It does look like she's buying his ass, but at this point who cares. Why is it that adopting a kid is so damn hard? Just ask the damn kid!
