Madonna sued by Malawi charity workers after school plan collapses
Madonna is being sued by eight charity workers in Malawi following her Raising Malawi charity scrapping plans to build a school in the country.

The singer is being sued for unfair dismissal and non-payment of benefits, reports Reuters.

The news comes after it emerged that Raising Malawi bosses were ousted from th organisation last year after squandering millions on the school plan, which will now never be followed through.

Mzondi Chirambo, the eight workers' lawyer, said: "Their employment was terminated by the trustees of Raising Malawi Academy For Girls ostensibly following the change of plan not to build the school as planned."

Chirambo added: "My clients are also being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement before they are paid their benefits."

The papers were filed in Malawi's industrial court. It is rumoured that Madonna is considering counter-suing.
