He has done it without any intention of undermining their ability or their understanding of politics, this was an attempt to test our budding politicians’ general knowledge. He has wanted to test how much do these celebrities, who may become our representatives in the future, really know about their own political parties, or even the country that they claim to want to run and improve?
The result was as surprising as it was hilarious. While we have to give it to some celebrities who came up with vague on-the-spot excuses for avoiding answering the questions, there were others who just hung up abruptly.
These were just a few of the answers we received when he has decided to test our budding politicians’ general knowledge.
