SURVEY

About 82% of Ugandans interviewed have opposed wife-beating, a survey carried out by the Afro Barometer has revealed.

According to the survey report, more than eight in 10 Ugandans said it is never justified for men to beat their wives.

“Opposition to wife-beating is high among both men and women, in rural as well as urban areas, in all age groups and regions, and at all education levels,” survey findings compiled in 2017 showed.

Afro Barometer, a global survey organisation, noted that 87% of women interviewed and 77% of men, opposed wife-beating.

The Afro Barometer team in Uganda, led by Hatchile Consult, interviewed 1,200 adult Ugandans in December 2016 and January 2017. The interview was carried out in all the regions of the country among adults from the age of 18.

The 2016/17, Justice Law and Order Sector annual performance report, revealed that in 2016, 13,132 cases of domestic violence were reported to the Police.
