The youngest MP in the just-elected National Assembly, John Paul Mwirigi, has been treated with a new makeover courtesy of one of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s designer.
23-year-old Mwirigi defied all odds to clinch the Igembe South MP seat on an Independent ticket and has now earned himself a wardrobe makeover befitting his new status.
In the photos that have gone viral online, the newly elected MP can be seen trying on new high-end suits in company of new Dagoretti South MP John Kiarie and Churchill Raw comedian MC Jessy.
During campaigns, Mwirigi relied on well-wishers to fund him and recently hit headlines when he rode on a public service bus from Meru to Nairobi to attend orientation at the parliament since he does not own a car.
The second year Bachelor of Education student at Mt. Kenya University was also driven to State House by Tharaka MP George Murugara for a Jubilee party parliamentary group meeting chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto.
After the meeting, Mwirigi allegedly walked on foot looking for a friend who had volunteered to drive him around until he purchases his own car.
Mwirigi clinched the Igembe South parliamentary seat after garnering 19,980 votes against Jubilee's Rufus Miriti's 16,615 votes.
