President Museveni while on a ceremony of passing out prison cadet officers yesterday at Kololo Independence Grounds revealed why he nolonger takes alcohol.
The President said that he did not like his first experience with the bitter drink.
Mr Museveni said that he even tasted it because of influence from a friend after being told that it was sweet and a drink for the men.
And hey, he did not taste your cheap sachet alcohol but big brands like Johnnie Walker.
“I had never tasted alcohol before then one of my friends convinced me to. I tried beer but it was so bitter like omululuza (bitter leaf). I asked why they were drinking it and he told me that “you will know the sweetness later.” I tried Johnnie Walker and it was like fire. I wondered if something burns my tongue then what will it do to my liver and kidneys.” President Museveni said
For a long time, the President has constantly advised Ugandans to desist from drinking alcohol and is clearly not a big fan of it.
Maybe it’s the reason bars are still closed
