President Museveni Wonders Why People Take Alcohol


“I had never tasted alcohol before then one of my friends convinced me to. I tried beer; it’s so bitter like omululuza (bitter leaf). I asked why they were drinking it, he told me ‘you’ll know the sweetness later.’ I tried Johnnie walker and it was like fire.

Don’t squander yourself with alcohol and umalaya. As an old man, I can tell you the advantage of discipline is good. You see me, in September I will be 77 years but I don’t have space for alcohol. I have never known why people drink alcohol.

I tried Johnnie walker and it was like fire. It is put in small glasses but it is like fire in the mouth. Why should you drink this thing? If it can burn the tongue, what can happen to the liver and other parts.

I am going to be 77 and I can walk any distance. Health is wealth; don’t play around with your life. Exercising is part of discipline and if you have health, you get time to do more things. The longer you live, the more contribution you can make if you are healthy.” Museveni said
