(Radio.com) Madonna is speaking out against allegations made by Malawi's President Joyce Banda over the validity of the her charity work.

On April 10, Banda wrote a press release that was published on the Malawian news website, the NYASA Times, questioning the real intentions of Madonna's charity, Raising Malawi.

"Among the many things that Madonna needs to learn as a matter of urgency is the decency of telling the truth," the statement reads. "For her to tell the whole world that she is building schools in Malawi when she has actually only contributed to the construction of classrooms is not compatible with manners of someone who thinks she deserves to be revered with state grandeur."

Banda also accused Madonna of demanding special treatment while visiting the country writing, "It is worth making [Madonna] aware that Malawi has hosted many international stars, including Chuck Norris, Bono, David James, Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville who have never demanded state attention or decorum despite their equally dazzling stature."

"I'm saddened that Malawi's President Joyce [Banda] has chosen to release lies about what we've accomplished, my intentions, how I personally conducted myself while visiting Malawi and other untruths," Madonna said in a statement released on April 11. "I have no intentions of being distracted by these ridiculous allegations." The plot thickens.
