Uganda Member of Parliament Says Wife Beating is OK
« on: March 16, 2018, 12:26:27 AM »

The issue of domestic violence has come to the fore in Uganda after a member of parliament argued in favor of wife beating.

In the words of the Ugandan legislator, a man who disciplines his wife can touch, tackle and beat her to streamline her.

Onesmus Twinamatsiko, a member of national parliament, made the comments to a national TV outlet on March 8. Outraged, the public demanded an apology. This is what they got on the floor of parliament Wednesday.

"Kindly accept my sincere and unreserved apologies honorable members…(applause) and the general public and more particularly the women. This apology is unconditional. The beating I meant wasn't the normal beating, but another type…(applause)," he said.

In other media interviews this week, Twinamatsiko reportedly said certain forms of abuse, like slapping, are ok.

Female legislator Adeke Anne Ebaju is among the MP's demanding disciplinary action against her colleague.

"There was no remorse in his statement. He still made mention of a certain beating in quotes which he did not even explain," she said. "And whatever explanation he attaches to it, I think it still belittles women. Did you see how all the male colleagues were thumping when he spoke about a certain beating?"

VOA was not able to obtain recent government statistics on spousal abuse. However, a 2011 demographic and health survey is telling. It found that about three out of five in Uganda believe that wife beating is justified. This is despite laws such as the constitution and the Domestic Violence Act which outlaw such abuse.
