Darren Maule wants to know who cooks in your kitchen

After Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni came under fire for saying it's not a man's role to cook, Darren Maule had to find out who does the cooking in KZN's kitchens.

"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," said President Museveni said on Sunday in a statement, as an example of how politicians and civil servants should stick to prescribed roles. 

His statement caused a social stir and led to Darren Maule wanting to know from KZN who the chef in their household is? And, of course, KZN did not fail to let us know their opinions.

Online news website Watchdog Uganda defended President 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".
