Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni Says He’s Never Been Sick In Last 31 Years

Ugandan President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has disclosed that for the past 31 years he has never been sick let alone to be admitted to a hospital.

His revelation means that since his 42nd birthday he has not been taken ill. It also means that he has been a healthy president since he came to power in 1986 – 31 years ago.

The 73-year-old former soldier said his durable health was due to the observance of health tips, he added that over 70% of registered medical conditions in the country’s health facilities were preventable if people observed basic health tips.

Most diseases that overwhelm these hospitals and health centres can be prevented if the people can improve on their hygiene and sanitation, because 75 per cent of cases registered are preventable.

‘‘Have you ever heard that Museveni has fallen sick and my legs hanged in hospital, for the last 31 years? This is because I observe some of these health tips which have eventually helped me to prevent some of these diseases. Many of the diseases are preventable.”

“Most diseases that overwhelm these hospitals and health centres can be prevented if the people can improve on their hygiene and sanitation, because 75 per cent of cases registered are preventable,” Museveni added.
