President Museveni has come out to caution the youth (Bazzukulu) against unprotected sex as the world commemorates the World AIDS day.
Museveni said that there is no point of having pleasure for 15 minutes but live the rest of ones life in misery.
He added that Ugandans should avoid stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV.
“To the Bazukulu, there is nothing wrong with you not having sex. It is bad mathematics to look for pleasure in 15 minutes and live in misery for 70 years. To all Ugandans, avoid stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV. It only escalates the problem,” he said.
While delivering his speech yesterday at Kololo Independence Grounds, Museveni said that “We have come a long way, and today I can say with confidence that we are winning the battle against HIV/AIDS. Everyone has a role to play. I thank everyone who has come up with clear and accurate information on how we can help each other in this fight; Everyone who has spoken up.”
President Museveni added that it’s the responsibility of everyone to fight against HIV discrimination and make sure that no one succumbs to the disease.
“It is the responsibility of each one of us to ensure that NO child is born with HIV, NO one gets infected with HIV, NO one dies due to AIDS-related illness and there is NO discrimination against people living with HIV. Let us end stigma, end AIDS & end pandemics.”
