Kabale Women Called Out on Beating their Husbands

Catherine Atwakire Ndamira, information pills the Kabale woman Member of Parliament has lashed out at women in her district who she said have contributed immensely to the growth of domestic violence there, sickness in which husbands are mostly the victims.

The MP noted with concern that married men have to a large extent suffered at the hands of their wives. She says the women beat up their husbands out of simple quarrels that are usually started by the women.

These she said, have been exacerbated by the growing practice of women going to bars to drink, and evading their family responsibilities.

The MP also lashed out at men, who as family heads sit back to and let everything disintegrate to the extent of being beaten by their own wives, which she said shows lack of seriousness about family.

Hon Ndamira was Sunday speaking to Christians of St. Mark Kikungiri Church of Uganda during the induction  of   Rev. Venerable  Gad Akanjuna as  the new Archdeacon of Kikungiri  Archdeaconry  by the Bishop of Kigezi  Rt. Rev. George Bagamuhunda.

Meanwhile, speaking at the same service, Patrick Besigye Keihwa the Kabale district chairman expressed concern that the district which used to perform highly in the national exams has deteriorated rapidly over the past years.

He blamed this on parents who opt to enroll their school going children in family economic activities, such as agriculture during school time.

Keihwa revealed that efforts are under way in partnership with the Chief Administrative Officer to have such parents arrested and charged.

“The sub county chiefs have been ordered to arrest such parents who are playing with the future of their children. At this point we you will not hold us at ransom with your votes.”

Also the district, has issued warnings for action on school heads that perform poorly during national exams.
