Madonna agrees to pay K24 million to sacked Malawi charity school employees

Pop star Madonna has reached agreement to pay K24 million to eight sacked school employees in Malawi who sued her over unpaid benefits and unjustified sackings after the collapse of her schools project.
 The group of sacked workers included chief executive Anjimile Oponyo.
 The singer contested that there was nothing unfair about the termination of the employees' contracts, which was necessary due to genuine economic reasons.
 The staff had claimed that they were being forced to sign a discriminatory termination agreement which was "unfair and unconstitutional". 
The industrial court in Blantyre however told Madonna to pay up.
