The president of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni has caused some stir online as he said he has not stepped into the kitchen since he got married and that cooking is for women

“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,” he said on Sunday in a statement, as an example of how politicians and civil servants should stick to proscribed 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.”

Ms Alice Alaso, a top mobiliser for The New Formation political pressure group said: “Museveni has revealed to the world what he has always believed in: that women can never be the same as their male counterparts.”

A section of online publications however, defended Mr 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.”
