Ugandan MP advises Men to Beat their Wives - BellaNaija“As a man, you need to discipline your wife,” Ugandan MP Onesimus Twinamasiko said on Ugandan national TV NTV.

Twinamasiko said this concerning the comments by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni who said men who beat women are cowards.

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

Criticism had quickly followed his comments, with people calling for his removal as an MP on social media.

Twinamasiko, trying to clarify his comments to BBC, said he didn’t mean beatings that could lead to injuries and deaths. He said:

I don’t mean beatings which cause injuries or death – but a slap – I would feel fine! Because it’s calling me to order. We would sit down and sort it out.

I was slapped once by my wife and it was OK with me, because we sorted out our differences. I also slapped her once. She had wronged me.
