Kenya is added to Pope’s African trip

Kenya will be the first country Pope Francis will visit as part of his first Apostolic Visit to Africa, the Holy See has confirmed.

The Pontiff announced his intention to visit Africa last January, stating in June that he would visit the Central African Republic and Uganda. 

“Accepting the invitation issued by the respective Heads of State and the bishops, His Holiness Francis will make an Apostolic Trip to Kenya from November 25 to 27, Uganda from November 27 to 29, and the Central African Republic from November 29 to 30,” a statement from the Holy See Press Office read.
