I’m not tired – Museveni says after being Uganda’s President for 33 years


Despite being in power for 33 years, the 75-year-old Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni disclosed that he is still much active to run the affairs of the country and hold on to the country’s presidency.

This disclosure was made by the Ugandan President in an open letter published on his blogpost.

Museveni who got into power on January 29, 1986 revealed that he delibrately lost weight by shedding off fat that accumulated in his body because the doctors have not ”clearly explained the mistake of not fighting fat.”

The open letter reads in part:


“I am not tired at all. I have, however, deliberately lost weight by shedding off that fat that I had allowed to accumulate on my body frame because the doctors had not explained to us clearly the mistake of not fighting fat.”


He then promised, “In future, I will explain to you this awareness.

“I have moved from 106 kgs to now 76kgs. I will stabilize my weight at 76kgs because that is the one that matches with my height of 5.7 feet.”

Musveni added that his “involvement with the political struggles is for historical missions of patriotism (loving Uganda), Pan- Africanism (loving Africa), social- economic transformation and democracy.

Why? It is for prosperity through the integration of the markets, for strategic security and fraternity in Africa. How many of you on the Social- media are contributing to that direction of thinking?”

Museveni also disclosed that all his children except one all chose the private sector over the public sector. The Ugandan leader who promised to discuss “the anti-obesity campaign” in his next blogpost, said all his children started off their career with the cattle industry.
