Pope Francis’ Kasarani Address
Before departing for Uganda, Pope Francis addressed Kenya’s youth at Safaricom Stadium Kasarani. The youth came from all over by school bus, matatus and on foot. It’s good that schools are closed so there was no hindrance for many who wanted to see and hear from the Pope who loves the youth.
The Pope’s address was to start at 10am but as early as 7am, many were already arriving at the Stadium.
I thought the address was to be at the Indoor Arena. Having it in the main Stadium was definitely a good choice because it was the ideal place to host so many youth who turned up.
President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived first. The super sanguine in him couldn’t resist gotearing wasee.
Not sure if she was excited to see Uhuru or Jomo.
Whoever did the flags put together so many upside-down. What a downer.

Before Pope Francis arrived, we got dancing in the excitement of the day and the band wasn’t left out.
Pope Francis was welcomed with wild cheers when he arrived.
Ghetto Classics had a pitch-perfect rendition of Ave Maria.
One of the highlights of Pope Francis’ address was when he asked us all to hold hands, as a sign of unity despite our differences in belief, religion and tribe. It was a powerful moment.
