A 24-year-old independent candidate is poised to become Igembe South MP. John Mwirigi, who carried out campaigns on a bicycle.

Mwirigi is still a student at Mount Kenya University. He may be one of the youngest legislators in the next Parliament.

Tallying of results countrywide has been underway since most polling stations closed at 5pm on Tuesday.
