Pope Francis arrived the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi earlier today for his first Papal visit to Africa.
The Holy Father was welcomed by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Nairobi governor Evans Kiderot, the people of Kenya and visitors from all around other countries. The welcome occasion was graced with colorful sing and African cultural dances.
Pope Francis while en route to Kenya was asked if he have any fears in regards to the security threats, and he bantered saying:  “I’m more afraid of the mosquitos.”
The Pope will as well be visiting Uganda and Central Africa Republic later in his visit in Africa. Pope Francis will be the first Pope to visit a war zone.
