Anger has erupted over the comments of a Uganda Member of Parliament who went on TV to detail how men should treat their wives.

Mr. Onesimus Twinamasiko explained on Ugandan national television the finer details of how to handle your spouse if she doesn’t do what you tell her: "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."

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">&quot;As a man, you need to discipline your wife…touch her a bit, tackle her and beat her to streamline her&quot;- Onesmus Twinamasiko, MP, Bugangaizi East following comments by Museveni that men who beat women are cowards and should face the full wrath of the law <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Patu™ (@AyamPatra) <a href="">11 March 2018</a></blockquote>

His words drew criticism from social media users in Africa, with a leading women’s rights group stating he should immediately resign.

Ms. Diana Kagere of the Center for Domestic Violence Prevention responded: "Mr. Twinamasiko should make a public apology to all women who have experienced violence."

"He should do the honorable thing and withdraw that statement. It's really a shock that a member of parliament would justify violence in any way. This is about crime.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Womyn continue to be disposable in this country. Time and time again, your silence, words and actions have proven that you care nothing for the safety and humanity of womyn. Onsemus Twinamasiko saying what he said represents majority of the society. <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#OnesmusTwinamasikoMustResign</a></p>&mdash; Tяıċıa (@triciatwasiima) <a href="">12 March 2018</a></blockquote>

The hashtag #OnesmusTwinamasikoMustResign was soon trending in Africa. According to statistics, more than half of the country’s women face domestic abuse. Uganda, a country of 41 million, is a former British colony situated in the middle of Africa.

Think of this next time you hear the Open Borders and Socialists demanding more refugees and immigration.

These are the Leadership figures of Uganda ……

But it could be any of 45 other countries in that general area.

Culturally many countries are to far apart to become part of the Melting Pot.

I would require BEFORE ANY immigrant is allowed to stay in the USA.

* they should have to undergo 3 years of Cultural submersion.

* be felony and drug crime free. before during their evaluation stay

* learn what are acceptable cultural customs.

* read and write the USA English language.

* and have a gainful means of being self sufficient self supportive

After all they are coming here seeking be part of America and should NOT be coming with any idea of changing the USA to look like the country they are fleeing.
