Uhuru gifts youngest MP with new SUV
President Uhuru Kenyatta has kept his promise and handed a brand new car to John Paul Mwirigi, the 23-year-old who was recently elected Igembe South Member of Parliament.
The President had promised to buy the Independent lawmaker a car soon after he was elected.
Mwirigi traversed the constituency on foot during his campaigns.
He then boarded a matatu to Nairobi for his first day in Parliament when he was sworn in.
The youthful MP thanked the President for the gift, saying the vehicle will enable him serve his constituents better.
He was handed the gift, a brand new Prado, at State Lodge, Sagana when the president met leaders from Cnetral Kenya.
The legislator who is an undergraduate student at Mount Kenyatta University, amassed 76 percent of the total votes cast.
He succeeds Mithika Linturi, who is now the Meru senator.
