A Ugandan MP who I believe still thinks he’s in the 7th century has drawn significant outrage after he said men should beat their women some times to teach them lessons.
According to Twinamasiko Onesimus, MP for Bugangaizi East, a man must beat the wife to teach her some lessons.
Recently the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, speaking on International Women’s Day, said that men who beat women are cowards.
However, Onesimus seemed unhappy with that and decided to respond with his ‘macho’ words of barbarism.
“As a man, you need to discipline your wife,” he told local tv channel NTV, according to the BBC.
“You need to touch her a bit, you tackle her, beat her somehow to really streamline her.”
Onesimus’ comments have drawn swift universal condemnation from Ugandans, as it should, and some are even calling for him to resign his seat.
