Malawi's president accused of Madonna 'grudge'

A spokesman for Madonna has previously said that Malawi's President has a "grudge" after her sister Anjimile Oponyo was sacked as the head of her charitable foundation Raising Malawi.

Ms Oponyo was sacked due to "concerns about mismanagement of $3.8m", said Trevor Neilson, whose Global Philanthropy Group manages Madonna's projects in Malawi.

The allegations have been denied by Ms Oponyo and the President Joyce Banda's office has dismissed the claim.
