NRM Caucus To Meet Over “Cohabitation Bill”

pilule geneva;”>Speaking at the International Women’s Day celebrations held in Nakasongola on Friday, illness the president said it is an act of bankruptcy in this generation for men to beat their wives thinking that they are inferior to them.

Museveni said from the formation of the NRM way back in the bush, it focused on equality among men and women since they are also human beings.

“From the time of liberation struggle it was clear that men and women are equal in the sight of God and this should also be in the sight of men.”

“It can be proved biologically that women are equal to men since the capacity of our brains is the same and some women have more capacity than men,” said Museveni.


The President said the Marriage and Divorce Bill is such a serious debate that if not properly handled it can lead to a lot of chaos and distortion in the society.

He has therefore recommended that the NRM members should convene for a caucus on Monday to discuss and lay very important strategies to address this issue.

During the celebrations different women were awarded medals to honor and recognize their contributions and achievements towards gender equality and women empowerment.

They include FDC strongwoman, Hon. Salaam Musumba, Hon. Nabila Nagayi, Hon. Kadaga Alitwala Rebecca, Hon. Nantongo Zziwa, Hon. Wandela Kazibwa, Hon. Jesca Alupo, Hon, Ruth Nankabirwa, Hon. Christine Aperu, Hon. Rosemary Ssenide, Hon. Amongi Resty, Hon. Rukia Nakadama, Kameteka Jovia, Najemba Rose, Naomi Kabasarwa, Hon. Apolo Nsibambi, Hon. John Nasasira, Hon. Muluri Mukasa, Hon.
