The much anticipated Pope Francis 3 day tour in Kenya is finally here and Kenyans can’t help but be amazed at how everything has worked out.
The pope landed in the country on Wed, Nov 25 at 5 pm where he was given a warm welcome by President Uhuru Kenyatta and the First Lady, Margaret Kenyatta at JKIA, and thereafter went to State House for an official welcome ceremony and courtesy call.
Well, now that the pope is here, we can all stop with the anxiety and get on with it. In regards to his visit, I thought about listing up some of the things the pope should do before he leaves so as to have the best Kenyan experience there is.
Here are 5 things Pope Francis should do to have a truly Kenyan experience.
1. Eat Chapati And Madondo
This is commonly referred to as the hustler’s meal, where madondo stands for fried beans and Kenya’s favorite wheat flour food, Chapati. Men prefer it because it’s a heavy meal more suitable for those with a big appetite. The pope can try this out especially when he goes to Kangemi.
2. Visit Uhuru Park
This is where those who can’t afford to go for family picnics at Zen Garden or Paradise Lost take their loved ones for good memories, chilling on the green grass and having photos taken while holding Dahlia flowers, with a thumbs up pose. It may not be the coolest hang out for young peeps, but the up country folks sure know how to have fun there. The pope should try it out now that we know he is down to earth.
