Posted Apr 3, 2018

[Anglican Communion News Service] 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.” Ntagali said: “I want to state categorically and very clearly that the Church of Uganda does not support his views.
