Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday handed a brand new Toyota SUV to John Paul Mwirigi, the youngest member of the 12th parliament, fulfilling a promise he had made during the election campaign.

The 23-year-old legislator represents Igembe South constituency in Meru County.

“Ahadi ni deni,’ he said as he handed over the key.

Mr Mwirigi broke from tradition by traversing the the constituency on foot in search of votes in a country where most parliamentary aspirants do it in expensive fuel-guzzlers.

The youthful MP thanked the President for the gift, saying he will now be able to serve his constituents better with the new vehicle.

The MP, who succeeds Mr Mithika Linturi, who is now the Meru senator, is an undergraduate student of Education at Mount Kenya University.

In late August, the MP rode on a matatu from State House to Parliament for the induction of members of the National Assembly.

He boarded the matatu like any other passenger from Meru Town to the famous Tearoom stage in Nairobi’s River Road.

He also was given a lift to State House by a fellow MP after a Jubilee parliamentary group meeting.

Mwirigi got 76 per cent of the votes cast.
