President Uhuru Kenyatta has fulfilled a promise he assured to Igembe South Member of Parliament (MP), John Paul Mwirigi, at the Sagana State Lodge in Nyeri.
President Uhuru handed over a brand new vehicle to Mr Mwirigi on Friday, a gift he had promised the young MP when he (Mwirigi) was elected in the August 8 General Election.
An overjoyed Mwirigi thanked the Head of State for the new machine and vowed to serve his constituents better.

The legislator, a Bachelor of Education student at Mt Kenya University clinched the seat after garnering 18,867 against Jubilee’s Rufus Miriti, who had 15, 411 votes.
Other candidates included Mwenda Mzalendo (7,695), Kubai Mutuma (6,331) and Raphael Muriungi (2,278) votes.
