Ugandan MP told to apologise over ‘beat your wife’ comment

A Ugandan member of parliament has been told to apologise to victims of domestic violence after saying men should “beat” their wives.

Onesimus Twinamasiko said on Ugandan television channel NTV that “As a man, you need to discipline your wife.

“You need to touch her a bit, you tackle her, beat her somehow to really streamline her,” he said.

His words have met with strong criticism from social media users, with one leading women’s rights group in Uganda saying he should seek therapy.

More than one in five women aged 15-49 have experienced domestic or sexual violence in Uganda, according to a government report published last year.
