John Paul Mwirigi came onto power when he was barely 23 years old as Igembe South MP during the just concluded 2017 general elections.

It is then that he got out of the car, charged at him and held me by the neck,” John Gikunda said.
The lawmaker denied the claims
“I never tried or attempted to throttle Wanugu and the allegations he’s making against me are meant to taint my name in bad light, I cannot engage myself in such kind of politics he want to drag me into,” he said. “Let the law take its cause for the truth to be known.”
