Madge plans to meet Mercy’s dad in Malawi

During her trip to Malawi to establish a $15 million school, Madonnaplans to meet three-year-old adopted daughter Mercy’s father

During her trip to Malawi to establish a $15 million school, Madonna plans to meet three-year-old adopted daughter Mercy’s father, usmagazine.com reports.

A source close to the pop star, 51, tells usmagazine.com that she will meet 24-year-old James Kambewa — who currently works odd jobs including serving as a night guard — for the first time during her humanitarian trip to the African nation.

“Madonna wants to meet Mr. Kambewa because she does not want to deny Mercy her background,” a source tells Us. “Madonna wants to assure Mr. Kambewa that Mercy will not be delinked from her roots.”

Still, another family member of Mercy’s isn't happy with the pop star’s plan. Mercy’s uncle, Peter Baneti, tells Us that her family in Malawi doesn’t approve of the meeting because Kambewa has only claimed paternity of Mercy after news of the adoption first emerged in April.

“We do not recognize Kambewa as Mercy’s father,” Baneti says. “He just came out of the woodwork to claim paternity while he was not there when my sister was pregnant.”

Madonna will also spend the trip meeting with President Bingu wa Mutharika, who will likely grant her honorary citizenship.
