Malawi President Peter Mutharika on Friday appointed an American pop singer Madonna as the country’s Goodwill Ambassador for Child Welfare. According to a brief statement from the Office of the President and Cabinet (OPC) available to APA, the president’s appointment is with immediate effect.
“It has pleased the president to appoint Madonna due to her passion for caring children in Malawi,” it said.
