Ugandan First Lady Janet Museveni addressed a number of concerns including tribalism and homosexuality at national youth convention with more than 8,000 attendees.
During her remarks, Museveni also spoke about the lures of homosexual sex, which she said advocates undertake for financial gain.
Mrs. Museveni also cautioned the youth against engaging in reckless sexual behaviour and alcohol consumption. She warned that these could hamper their ability for innovation. She also castigated those who think that they can find solutions in witchdoctors. "There are no shortcuts to wealth. That is a mother's words of wisdom to her children." She also castigated those promoting homosexuality, which she described as an abomination in the African culture.
"In God's word, homosexuality attracts a curse, but now people are engaging in it and saying they are created that way. It is for money The devil is stoking fires to destroy our nation and those taking advantage are doing so because our people are poor," she said. Mrs. Museveni advised the youth not only to listen to messages on how they can make money but also focus on spiritual growth. "You know that you will lose everything else when you lose your soul.
