Adoption process delayed after official is refused flight

Madonna’s adoption of Malawian David Banda is facing a further delay after a court-appointed official was refused permission to travel to Britain.

Penstone Kilembe has been accused of getting too close to the case and ‘personalising’ the matter, reports the Daily Mail.

He was due to visit Madonna in Britain this month to assess whether 23-month-old David can stay with her and hubby Guy Ritchie.

Malwaian Children’s Minister Kate Kainja has said someone else will now make the trip – which means Madonna may have to wait several weeks before the process can start again.

‘We have contacted Madonna to explain that someone else will come to assess her,’ Ms Kainja told Malawi News. ‘We feel Mr Kilembe personalised the whole issue.’
