Comedian MC Jessy took newly elected Igembe South MP John Paul Mwirigi on a shopping spree at the boutique of one of Nairobi’s top stylist.

The 23 year-old Mount Kenya University student defied all odds to win the parliamentary seat as an independent candidate after campaigning on a bicycle.

MC Jessy on Thursday gave the new MP a wardrobe makeover at the boutique of Naneuleshan, one of Uhuru Kenyatta’s stylist.

Mr Mwirigi, the youngest member in the current parliament, does not own a car. He relies on friends to drive him around the city.

In August, during the induction for members of the National Assembly, he travelled from Meru on a matatu and alighted at the famous Tea Room terminal on River Road.

Throughout the two-and-a-half hour journey, nobody seemed to recognise him, he said, until he met a friend, who offered to drive him to Parliament Buildings.

He carried his election certificate and identity card to show that he was indeed an elected MP, securing him easy entry into Parliament Buildings.
