This is 24-yr-old John Paul Mwirigi, he just won election to represent igembe south in Kenya and he is set to be the youngest ever member of Kenya’s parliament.
This is equivalent to house of reps seat in Nigeria.
One remarkable thing about John is that he was poor to even afford to print campaign posters and had to carry out his campaign on Boda Boda.
“We decided to elect him, he had no money for campaign posters and campaigns but he offered good pledges and his manifesto was good” said an unidefnetied member of Igemba south.
John is an orphan but today has made history in Kenya by being the youngest parliemntary in the history of that country.
He noted how hard and challenging it was for him to get an education as he campaigned to voters. As an orphan, he was able to go to school through the help of well wishers. That made his story more appealing to the people.
His victory has been attributed to him being relatable to the people and his door to door campaign strategy which had him speaking to almost every voter.
He was never taken seriously by other contestants but has now dealt each and every one of them a huge blow.
