President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday handed a brand new vehicle to John Paul Mwirigi, the 23-year-old Igembe South MP.
The President had promised to buy the MP a car soon after he won in the August 8 elections.
Mr Mwirigi traversed the constituency on foot during the campaign.
The youthful MP thanked the President for the gift, saying he will now be able to serve his constituents better with the new vehicle.
The MP, an undergrad uate student of Education at Mount Kenya University, got 76 per cent of the votes cast.
He succeeds Mr Mithika Linturi, who is now the Meru senator.
The MP travelled by matatu from Meru to Nairobi late August this year for the induction for members of the National Assembly.
He boarded the matatu like any other passenger from Meru Town to the famous Tearoom stage in Nairobiâs River Road.
He also was given a lift to State House by a fellow MP after a Jubilee parliamentary group meeting.
