Pontiff leaves Kenya, heads to Uganda
The pope is now heading to Uganda in continuation of his Africa tour
At the Jomo Kenyatta International airport in Nairobi, he was welcomed by traditional dancers, some in Maasai dresses, children waving the Vatican flag and choirs.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and other officials bid farewell to the pope, who arrived in Nairobi on Wednesday.
Hundreds of people lined the roads leading to the airport to wave goodbye to Francis.
During his stay in Kenya, he spoke out about the environment, corruption, human rights and poverty — issues that are close to his heart. He also visited a slum in Nairobi before embarking.
He advised the youths to desist from corruption. He urged them to resist the temptation of corruption, saying it's like sugar: 'You develop a taste for it but it's ultimately terrible for you.'
