The First Lady Janet Kataha Museveni has advised all wives in Uganda to stop poking their nose in their husband’s movements if they want to succeed in marriage.
Janet and Museveni celebrated 50 years in marriage over the weekend in Ntungamo as the First Couple renewed vowels.
In her speech, the Minister of Education revealed his golden secret that has enabled him to stay with her husband for half a decade.
“To have your spouse, give him peace and let him be. What he wants to do let him do because it is nothing. And really I know he knows that I don’t follow him, picking up things, those small things. Ladies just let your husbands be,” she said arousing thunderous applause from the audience.
The First Lady later took to social media express her gratitude to God and her husband, President Yoweri Museveni.
Yesterday, the celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary, was a gift from God our Father. Without His goodness, our story wouldn’t exist.
As Mzee Kaguta Museveni and I marked our golden jubilee, my heart swelled with gratitude to God for guiding my family to the right place: Ntungamo District. This is where my husband and I trace our roots, the backdrop for my childhood dreams, and the birthplace of my love for our homeland. At seventy-five, commemorating our marital milestone, no other place in Uganda could resonate more profoundly with me.
In these challenging times, the celebration of family has taken on paramount importance. It’s heartening to see so many around the world continuing to praise Him for creating the human family, the foundation from which He has blessed humanity to thrive.
I believe many would agree that at seventy-five, and with Yoweri at seventy-eight, we stand as a testament to God’s grace. Having reached the fifty-year mark in our marital journey, it’s evident our enduring bond is a reflection of God’s work. As we’ve matured together, we’ve come to rely more on each other, and most importantly, on Him.
Ebenezer! Truly, the Lord has brought us this far.
