The Katikkiro of Buganda, Charles Peter Mayiga has urged men to always respect and protect the dignity of their wives before the public.
“There are men I hear these days who disrespect their wives before the public ,utter all the filthy statements about their wives and yet they should have acted exemplary to the society, it’s so absurd,”he noted.
Addressing the Lukiiko yesterday, Mayiga said that any man with a sound mind should fight hard to protect the image of his wife before the public than shaming her.
“Don’t allow even a friend to disrespect your wife, if you are a man of dignity and integrity you can not allow such to happen to your wife,” he said.
While he did not name names, his remarks come after Pastor Aloysius Bugingo of House of Prayer Ministries publicly revealed that his former wife was suffering from a condition that prevented him from having sex with her regularly.
Bugingo, who later apologised, was heavily criticised.
He noted that the reason why most girls and women fear to marry in this generation is because of men who go in different public places and discuss issues about their wives which is unprofessional.
He also urged women to take full responsibility of their homes more especially promoting cleanliness and the organisation of their houses.
“A good family is not about giving birth to many children. Some women do not know how to cook, a right woman should observe all what is required of her,” he noted.
He said that the only way to overcome all the challenges in marriage is to devise possible legal means to solve the matter than running to the public.
“The difference between successes and failure is really the difference between those who are able to take decisions when it matters and those who fail to take decisions,” he said.
