[Kampala, Uganda, ACNS] Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, the Primate of the Church of the Province of Uganda, has used his Easter message to stress that domestic violence is “always wrong”. His message was a response to comments by Member of Parliament Onesmus Twinamasiko, who said in a tv interview: “As a man, you need to discipline your wife. You need to touch her a bit, and you tackle her and you beat her somehow to streamline her”. Archbishop Stanley said: “I want to state categorically and very clearly that the Church of Uganda does not support his views. Even though he is an Anglican, he and his views do not represent the Church of Uganda. We condemn all domestic violence. No exceptions.”
