- 75-year-old Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, has told the citizens that he had shed weight, contrary to opinions that he looked worn out.
Museveni who has been in office since January 29, 1986 made the revelation in a lengthy letter posted on his blogspot, that he decided to shed fat after discovering what doctors regularly fail to explain to the general populace.
“One of the contributors thought that I looked tired. 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.
“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.
“Before I talk about the anti- obesity campaign, however, in my next message I will talk about education in order to put in focus the recent strike at Makerere,” part of the letter read.
