Men babysitting and cooking at homes are neither 'stupid' nor 'bewitched', says an expert.
Mpumalanga Community Safety, Security and Liaison MEC Vusi Shongwe made the statement while speaking to 500 men during the opening of a two-day Mpumalanga men's summit that started in Mbombela on Tuesday.
"Babysitting or cooking in the house doesn't mean that you are a stupid man and that doesn't mean that udlisiwe [you are bewitched] but it shows love and respect for your family," News 24 quoted Shongwe as saying.
"Real men play with their kids and they help with anything in the house, including cooking when they can."
The summit, dubbed 'Asikhulumeni Madoda [Men, let us speak],' is seeking men's views on the abuse of women and children, especially during the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign.
