A 24-year-old Mount Kenya University student is poised to become the youngest Member of Parliament (MP) in the history of Kenyan elections.
Independent candidate John Mwirigi appears headed to clinch Igembe South MP seat if current results are anything to go by.
John Mwirigi, who has been carrying his campaigns on a 'black mamba' bicycle is so far leading in the legislator race with 18,986 votes against Jubilee candidate Joseph Miriti, who has 15,724.
Mwirigi is an orphan and lack of funds forced him to carry an aggressive door to door campaigns, to sell his agenda to the Igembe South residents.
"We decided to elect him. He had no money for campaigns but he offered good pledges and his manifesto was good," a resident told The Star.
