Politics is too serious a business to be left for politicians, National Unity Platform (NUP) party president Robert Kyagulanyi, a.k.a Bobi Wine has told artists.

"Politics is too serious a business to be left to politicians. Use your talent to save your jobs as an artist and also save our country so that we open a new chapters for the next generation to be proud of." he said.
