He said this while at the pass out ceremony of cadets, Assistant Superintendents and non-commissioned officers for Uganda Prisons at Kololo independence grounds.
“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.”
He advised the new staff to stay away from alcohol and prostitutes unless they want to waste their lives away.
“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 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,” president Museveni added.
It is always so evident when the president is speaking that he hates alcohol. This must be one of the reasons why he has kept bars locked.
