Cancer Society honours P.M. Tuilaepa

09 August 2018

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sa’ilele Malielegaoi receives a souvenir photo from the Samoa Cancer Society President Lauaki Jason Annandale to recognise and honour the Prime Minister’s leadership role as a loyal supporter.


Tuilaepa is the first Prime Minister to have shaved and dyed his hair in fundraising drives by the Cancer Society in recent years.

In 2012, Tuilaepa became the first government leader to shave his hair bald to raise close to $200,000 for the Cancer Society.  The following year, he dyed his hair for the same course. 

The Prime Minister is also a vocal supporter of the Pinktober month in Samoa.
