Just days after replacing Police Chief Gen Kale Kayihura, President Yoweri Museveni has warned those behind the spate of killings of women that their days are numbered, given that the “bean weevil” that had infiltrated the Uganda Police has since been removed.

The president made the tough remark while giving a speech at International Women’s Day celebrations in Mityana.

He has promised that government is planning to buy more equipment needed to find suspected murderers.

At the same event, Museveni said any man who beats a woman is “stupid and a coward”.

“I’ve been with Janet for close to 50 years but I’ve never even pushed her, when we have our fights, i just leave her in peace and go somewhere else. Men stop beating women, we even stopped cattle keepers from hitting cows, what then makes you beat a woman? When you see a man beating a woman, know that he’s stupid and he’s a coward because if you want to fight, look for a fellow man,” He noted.

“If you beat a woman and then put on a trouser, I don’t count you a man,”
