A Ugandan MP Onesimus Twinamasiko has sparked outrage after he 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 continued.

He said following comments by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni that men who beat women are cowards and should face the full wrath of the law.

Mr. Twinamasiko attempted to clarify his comments in an Interview with BBC saying, “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.”

Below are some of the reactions to the MP’s support of domestic violence:
