Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, claims he has never fallen ill in the 31 years since he became head of state in 1986.
“Have you ever heard that Museveni has fallen sick and my legs hanged in hospital for the last 31 years?” said Museveni, 72, at an event in eastern Uganda to mark the launch of a translation of the Bible into a local language, Lugwere, Uganda’s Daily Monitor reported.
“This is because I observe some of these health tips which have eventually helped me to prevent some of these diseases,” said the veteran president, who was re-elected in 2016 in an election marred by allegations of irregularities.
Museveni gave more tips on staying healthy. These included getting vaccinations for disease; sleeping under mosquito nets treated with insecticides; and staying off alcohol.
