Madge and hubby Guy Ritchie had been planning to adopt 13-month-old orphan Mercy James, but her uncle John Ngalande says that he doesn’t want her to be raised by white people.

Mr Ngalande told British newspaper The People that not only was he against Mercy being taken away from her family in Malawi, but that he also didn’t want her being adopted by a white person, even if it wasn’t Madonna.

“We were told when Mercy went into the orphanage that we would be in constant contact with her and that she would come back to us after six years. I would like to stick to that. Whether it be Madonna or any other white person, I’m against our child being taken away,” Contactmusic quoted him, as telling the paper.

“I would rather we be poor and struggling with Mercy, than for her to go and live with a big white star far away,” he added.

Brit paper The Sun had revealed that the singer was planning on adding another member to the family next April, but due the controversy caused by Madonna’s adoption of toddler David Banda, she had told her lawyer in Malawi, Alan Chinula, to “cover all legal bases” this time. (ANI)
