First Lady Janet Museveni has advised women to give their husbands “peace” for their marriages to thrive.

Janet, who has been married to President Museveni for the last 50 years, emphasised: “Give him peace. Just let him be.”

She added: “What he wants to do, let him do because it’s nothing.”

Janet was speaking during a luncheon at Irenga farm in Ntungamo district in commemoration of their golden jubilee anniversary.

The colourful occasion was attended by family members and friends.

Janet’s remarks come against the backdrop of increased divorce cases in Uganda.

Women usually accuse men of spending the better part of their time away from home.

However, Janet said women should be more accommodative and tolerant of their husbands’ actions.

“And he (Museveni) knows, I don’t follow him, picking up things,” said Janet.

“Ladies, let your husbands be,” she emphasised.

In his speech, Museveni hailed the First Lady for exhibiting resilience and courage in raising their children despite his permanent absenteeism during the liberation struggle period.

“Maama Janet was not only a mother but a mother of children with a permanently absentee husband. Therefore, when Maama Janet helped me to create a family, I was very grateful for her contribution,” said Museveni.

The First Son, Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba thanked God for being so faithful to their parents and enabling them to celebrate their golden jubilee.

“He has not only protected them and used them to serve this great land of Uganda but also through them, they brought to the world a great number of people since the population of Uganda has greatly increased when Mzee and Maama are in charge of this country,” Gen. Muhoozi said.

“Therefore, I join them in thanking you for honouring their invitation to come and join our family to give glory and honour to God during this Thanksgiving today.”

The First Daughter, Pastor Patience Rwabwogo in the company of her husband Mr. Odrek Rwabwogo said when their parents got married 50 years ago, their lives were under threat because their father was involved in the struggle for the fight for freedom in Uganda.

“In fact when they got married in 1973, the only thing that was certain was the uncertainty of the new life they were embarking on together but 50 years on, God has fought their battle, He has enlarged their territory,” Pastor Patience noted.

“God has blessed them with every natural and spiritual blessing and He has restored all things to them. They have built houses and lived in them, planted vineyards and eaten fruits from them. God of restoration has restored everything for them.”

Pastor Patience also said their parents are committed to family and they have been able to give them love and quality time in abundance.

“We had a lot of love, but we also had strong boundaries. We have grown and our relationship with our parents has grown into a stronger bond because Mzee and Maama are the first ones we always call to share good news, prayers, and share counsel.”
