First Lady Rachael Ruto has advised Igembe South Member of Parliament John Paul Mwirigi to get a wife and start a family.
The legislator who is now 29 years old, was elected in 2017 at a tender age of 23 becoming the youngest legislator in Parliament then.
Speaking at the St. Thomas Athi Catholic Church in Maua Meru county, he First Lady said a wife will be important in ensuring that the parliamentarian has a home where constituents can freely visit and air out their issues and someone to make tea for his visitors.
“Ulichaguliwa ukiwa 23 tunaelewa lakini sasa 29…Atleast tafuta nyumba ili hawa constituents wako wapate mahali pa kukuja, na wakikuja wapate mtu anawapikia chai,” she said
Her Excellency Ruto told the legislator that if he can’t get a girl to marry from Meru, she can get him a good girl from Rift Valley. “Nilikuwa nimesema kama wasichana wa Meru hawapatikani, nataka nimpeleke huko Rift Valley nimtafutie bibi. Usikae sana, ulichaguliwa ukiwa miaka 23, lakini sasa miaka 29 at least tafuta nyumba..” She said in Swahili.
