Madonna sends error-filled handwritten letter to Malawian President
New York: Madonna, who just returned from a week-long trip to Malawi where she visited the 10 school projects that her charity built, wrote a barely legible, error filled, handwritten letter to the South African nation`s President Joyce Banda.
"Dear Joyce," the scrawled, nearly illegible note begins on the 54-year-old singer`s own monogrammed stationery. If addressing a country`s president by first name is not informal enough, the pop diva went on to congratulate the president, the nation`s first female leader, on her "new position."
She misspelled the word responsibility as "responsability" and wrote in a messy handwriting with little order on the page, the New York daily News reported.
She redeemed herself at the end of the letter, wishing Banda good luck and offering her "warm regards and great respect."
The two women did not meet during the weeklong trip, which Madonna took with her two 8-year-old adopted Malawian children, David Banda and Mercy James.
Madonna was initially planning to build a 15 million dollar 500-bed Raising Malawi Academy for girls, before changing her plans to help fund several community schools, which led to some controversy in Malawi.
She also closed the Malawi office of Raising Malawi and fired employees for misappropriating funds.
