Ulemu Msungama in India for hair transplant

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The Maravi Post has learnt with a shock that President Lazarus Chakwera’s Tonse administration Sports Minister Ulemu Msungama is currently in India for hair transplant on his head.

Msungama is one of Chakwera’s trusted boys from Tonse main shareholder Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

According to social commentator and media pundit Dickson Kashoti has questioned Msungama’s wisdom to use public funds on personal matter treatment while Malawi hospitals lack resources to cure patients.

“As a tax payer I demand an explanation on why you bulldozed the ministry of Health to send you to India for hair transplant.

“I am informed you have gone to India on the pretext of knee treatment yet you are there for hair transplant at the expense of public money,” queried Kashoti.

He added, “This is sad because deserving Malawians who need foreign specialist treatment are on a long waiting list and most of them die before flying out for treatment because the government has no money.

“What you have done is an abuse of your ministerial position therefore you need to resign as a cabinet minister as soon as you arrive.You are an embarrassment to the cabinet, am sorry to say. Ndiope ndani (who should I fear?”.

But Msungama on his facebook wall slams Kashoti, “Not every post requires my attention.Thank you!”

The Maravi Post is investigating further how much has taxpayers money used on Msungama’s hair transplant medical treatment in India.

Msungama is MCP lawmaker for Lilongwe South East Constituency.

Despite reports of Tonse administration’s ministers misconduct Chakwera has failed to discipline or rebuke them for the past six months.

Why Hair Transplant?

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that removes hair follicles from one part of the body, called the ‘donor site’, to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’.

The technique is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding (like the back of the head) are transplanted to the bald scalp.

Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelasheseyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants.


Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.

Since hair naturally grows in groupings of 1 to 4 hairs, current techniques harvest and transplant hair “follicular units” in their natural groupings.

Thus modern hair transplantation can achieve a natural appearance by mimicking original hair orientation.

This hair transplant procedure is called follicular unit transplantation (FUT). Donor hair can be harvested in two different ways: strip harvesting, and follicular unit extraction (FUE).
