As a man, you need to beat your wife - Ugandan MP

A Ugandan MP 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 "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." .

Twinamasiko made the comment following comments by the president, Museveni, that men who beat women are cowards and should face the full wrath of the law .

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.
