Madonna: Malawi Pardons Jailed Gay Couple!

Madonna is thanking fans for helping to free a gay couple from Malawi prison.

“I have always believed love conquers all—yesterday I got to see it in action,” the 51-year-old Material Mom said in a statement. “In the last week over 30,000 of you added your name to mine calling for the release of Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalangal—the Malawi couple sentenced to 14 years hard labor for the ‘crime’ of homosexuality. With incredible joy, I am writing to share with you that Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika has ordered their release [on humanitarian grounds].”

When Madonna talks, Malawi listens!

Upon hearing of the Malawian court decision to imprison a gay couple, Madge said she was “shocked and saddened.”
