President Museveni has said he finds it odd that people enjoy alcohol yet when he first tasted it, it was so bitter that he abandoned it.
The president was speaking during the pass out ceremony for cadet Assistant Superintendents and non -commissioned officers for Uganda Prisons at Kololo independence grounds.
Mr.Museveni told the prisons officers that the future is bright for them but only if they are disciplined and don’t engage in alcoholism which might destroy their lives.
The president reminisced one occasion in 1966 when he first tasted alcohol, Johnnie walker and it was like fire when his friends took him to a bar in Mbarara and asked him to try the drink before wondering what happens to the liver if it can burn the tongue that resists the heat of food.
According to Museveni, it pays to be disciplined by anybody at work, adding that keeping healthy makes one more useful to society. END
