President Museveni has cautioned Ugandans to start eating healthy foods in order to avoid sicknesses.
The President said that most of the sicknesses people suffers with are lifestyle diseases.
He made the remarks while addressing while launching 12 marine ambulances at the Marine Battalion headquarters in Entebbe last week.
“I have been active for the last 60 years, almost continuously. I think I have only been down with some malaria only two times in these 60 years. Because I have got work to do and I cannot do it when I’m sick. I have got a mission to do.” Museveni said.
Museveni, however, said that he no longer goes under the sun much and it has somehow affected him
“I had very low Vitamin D last year when they checked. There’s another one called Vitamin B12 and all those are part of the barracks to fight the enemy and yet mine were down. Not because I didn’t have the capacity to have them but because I didn’t know and I no longer go to the sun, I go from the house to the car. I no longer expose myself to the sun. I’m like the ones in Europe who have no sun. So, I had to sort that out.” he said
