Madonna's School Becoming Cemetery

The land on which Madonna planned to build a school in Malawi is now being designated as a cemetery for national heroes.
Madge had planned to construct an academy for girls on the site in Chinkhota and attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony there in 2009. Despite the goal, the plans were abandoned last year after Madonna's Raising Malawi charity fell into crisis amid allegations of financial problems.
Tourism Minister Daniel Liwimbi told The Guardian, "It was a cabinet decision to construct the heroes' acre at this site… Malawians deemed to have done a heroic endeavor of national importance, and selected by committee, which will scrutinize whatever they did, will be buried there."
Do you think Madonna should try and reboot her school plans?
