‘Men should not cook’ Ugandan President Museveni says

Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni is being criticized by people after saying that cooking is not a ‘man’s role’. He said that after a man gets married, he should never step into the kitchen.

“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.

He was saying this statement on Sunday when he was explaining how politicians and civil servants should stick to their roles.

Museveni married his wife in 1973 and argued that he has never cooked or stepped into the kitchen.

This is what old men say, since in that era that was what was happening. Men were never allowed into the kitchen, their work was farming and hunting while women used to cook and wash. Times have changed though; some men even cook better than most women. In some households the husband and the wife interchange in cooking. Nobody has a specific role.

However, in some Ugandan cultures, it is taboo for men to cook. Also in some Kenyan cultures but times are changing. Some ethnic groups refer to men who cook as transvestite which means a man dressing or behaving like a woman.

According to me, this is not true; cooking doesn’t have anything to do with it. If you feel like cooking or whatever, go ahead. Nobody has specific roles.
