POPE FRANCIS CONCLUDES VISIT TO KENYA, HEADS TO UGANDA

NAIROBI, Nov 28 (NNN-EFE)– Pope Francis is concluding on Friday his trip to Kenya with a visit to a slum area in the capital city and a meeting with young people in a stadium, after which he will head to Uganda to start the second phase of his five-day trip to Africa.

The pontiff is visiting Kangema district, one of the poorest in the city, to talk to thousands of the neighborhood’s residents during a ceremony in the district’s church.

Francis will then meet with youths at Kasarani sports stadium, where U.S. President Barack Obama delivered a speech four months ago.

A farewell ceremony at the airport is set to take place before heading to the Ugandan capital city of Entebbe, where he will be received by President Yoweri Museveni, who has been in power for 30 years.

Pope Francis started on Wednesday a landmark first official trip to Africa to spread a message of peace and reconciliation in countries affected by armed violence and a deterioration of human rights, such as Kenya, Uganda and Central African Republic.–NNN-EFE
