Everyone is excited, and you can tell from social media. The 266th and current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church Pope Francis finally embarked on his trip to Kenya. He arrived yesterday evening, but most of us did not get a chance to see him.

Well, today thousands of pilgrims arrived in the city as early as 4 AM to get a glimpse of the Pope, and as we are speaking now, there are very long queues in the streets of Nairobi with many hoping to see the Pontiff live for the first time. Below are the photos, flip through

The Pope is expected at the University of Nairobi grounds in a few.
