Malawian PRESIDENT BEN MUTHARKA has offered Madonna his support as the pop star makes her first TV appearance to defend her recent adoption President Mutharka admits he's shocked by the controversy surrounding Madonna's adoption of 13-month-old DAVID BANDA, stating he can't understand why activists around the world are upset by the singer's good deed The RAY OF LIGHT hitmaker has been heavily criticised for allegedly breaking Malawian adoption laws in an attempt to rush through the process and become a mum again But the President urges Madonna's critics to stop and think about exactly what she has done: "Someone comes and takes one child, to give that child a future education and we want to make a noise? I don't know " Meanwhile, Madonna taped a TV interview with Oprah Winfrey in America yesterday (24OCT06), in which the singer insisted she didn't purposely break any laws during the adoption process But she confessed that Malawian adoption laws were so vague, officials seemed to make them up as they went along In the interview, which airs later today (25OCT06), an emotional Madonna also tells Oprah that the little boy she is attempting to adopt was suffering from malaria and tuberculosis when she first met him in a Malawi orphanage
