Men Shouldn’t Cook – Uganda President Yoweri Museveni Says. by Wingsnewspaper: 11:00am On Nov 06, 2018
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni came under fire on Monday for saying he had not stepped into the kitchen since he got married, and that he believes that other men shouldn’t cook as well as it’s not a man’s role to do so.

He said:

“The head of the home never goes into the kitchen. It is now 45 years with Mama Janet, I have never stepped into the kitchen. That is how it should be,” on Sunday in a statement, as an example of how politicians and civil servants should stick to prescribed roles.

Oxfam’s International Executive Director, Winnie Byanyima, hit back at the 74-year-old president on Twitter, saying she was “disappointed”.

“Cooking isn’t a woman’s job. It’s a life skill. All people – men and women should cook,” she wrote.

“When cooking, cleaning and doing other domestic chores are left to women, they are denied an equal chance to raise incomes or to be politically active.”


Beatrice Alaso from the opposition Forum For Democratic Change told AFP:

“Museveni has revealed to the world what he has always believed in: that women can never be the same as their male counterparts.”

Online news website Watchdog Uganda however defended Museveni’s comments as consistent with the country’s culture which sees men cooking as “taboo”, saying some ethnic groups in the country have a word referring to men who cook as a “transvestite or a man dressing and behaving like a woman so men shouldn’t cook.”

Funny thing is; When you see ladies complain of cooking, you'll think most of them can cook, you start wondering what they've been cooking that is giving them the guts to complain.

Shebi na all these ones wey you go check their browsing history and you go dey see...[How to parboil maggi, how to fry water]

Lmao, ladies feel important in the kitchen when they meet men tht can't cook, but when they meet a good male-cook, they'll feel so so uncomfortable and intimidated.

Any man that cannot take care of his immediate needs such as cooking, laundry without the help of a woman is a disgrace.

It's even for your own good as a man if you know how to cook because your woman will know she has to up her game and bring in something more useful to the table .
