American pop queen Madonna is in Malawi to inspect the schools she has built in the impoverished African country, the native home of her adopted two children. She had built 10 schools with an organisation called BuildOn. The schools reach out to 3,800 students, Madonna's managers said.

Malwai Education minister Eunice Kazembe last year challenged a claim by her charity that it built 10 schools, saying they were only classroom blocks. But her managers say that the structures comply with national standards.

Madonna arrived on Sunday with David Banda and Mercy James, the two children she adopted from Malawi.AP
