The little girl Mercy James and her "brother" David Banda are undeniably Africans and upon majority, can decide to re-migrate back to Africa? Their story is in print and nothing can wish it away. All the sentiments notwithstanding, her odds with Madonna and in America is second to none and when compared with Malawi, Icheoku says, none existent. The opportunities are overwhelmingly better in America than Africa? It is going to be much easier for Mercy James to succeed in America than she would in Malawi with such untoward, unfavorable conditions?
Icheoku says you already have enough starving mouths to feed, and if in doubt take a look at the beautiful starving Malawian girl, pictured left above? Your country have so many Starving Janes to worry about little Miss Sunshine, Mercy James! These left-behinds as above left, are more than sufficient in number to keep your bureacrcy incharge busy? Please direct your energies to finding solutions for the likes of this, concentrate your energies on them and not spend it worrying about a little girl whose fortunes have smiled down from heaven. Little Mercy James has a date to keep with destiny and so, let no man sabotage that! Please Mr. President, do not allow Malawians, by your failure to intervene to save this adoption, to become known as a petty, jealous Africans who cannot stand a successful woman trying so hard to improve the lot of a little Malawi girl? Do this for little Mercy James; do it for Malawi; do it for Africa; let Madonna adopt the little girl. It can only help! If there is any law implicated otherwise, let there be passed immediately, a bye-law or your executive order, amending such provision. This will facilitate the hands of the appellate court to intervene and save the adoption by reversing the judgment today denying the petition. Do that and you will have your name etched in later history as that fore-sighted, progressive African president of Malawi, who understood that the present world order is changing and that land boundaries are becoming unpopular? The little girl has a fate with her destiny and let no man be on her way; to simply deny her this golden opportunity which is knocking on her door, is homicidal! Posterity will not be kind to all and/or any of the conspirators and antagonists of such a Godly act of and by Madonna. Let the decision be vacated so that Madonna can have her Malawi daughter.
