HIS INITIAL STATEMENT: “As a man, you need to discipline your wife…touch her a bit, tackle her and beat her to streamline her”- Onesmus Twinamasiko, MP, Bugangaizi East said following comments by Museveni that men who beat women are cowards and should face the full wrath of the law.
DOUBLING DOWN AFTER INITIAL OUTRAGE: “I did not say you need to beat your wife. I only said there is need to touch her or beat her a little bit,” Twinamasiko said.
WHO IS THIS WIFE BEATER: Born on July 15, 1987, Twinamasiko went to Bukora PS and later to Kyenjojo Integrated School for O and A level. In 2009, he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mass Communication and in 2016, he graduated with a Master’s degree in Arts from Uganda Pentecostal University. He worked as presenter and programmes manager at UBC (national broadcaster) before joining elective politics which he won in 2016.
When we talk about gender equality, some people accuse us of being radicals. We need a total mental overhaul of how we think about women and men’s relationship to women. The idea that someone is the head or master and the other the subordinate is what breeds this kind of terrible mentality. And please, don’t come at me with excuses. I know people I grew up with who have had secondary and tertiary education like this Ugandan Member of Parliament who believe you need to “discipline” your wife.
Remember pastor Chris’s clip I shared two days ago where he says a husband is master to his wife? These people think women are their subordinates who need to be treated like kids and disciplined. It is mostly about toxic Arab and European Muslim and Christian values about who is head or subordinate in a home. These misogynists co-opt these religious values and use it to oppress women. We need better values. And it is not about going through formal education. It is time for our women to say they will never stand by for this nonsense and for us young men of reason to support them wholeheartedly. This man needs to be forced out of parliament immediately because he is an unrepentant misogynist and a threat to Ugandan women with ideas better left to medieval times.
JUST TO BE PETTY: Look at how stupid face like that. Don’t you look like you need some streamlining? Idiot!
