A delegation to conduct preparations for the arrival of Pope Francis is expected to jet into Kenya next week.
Although the exact date and the size of the delegation are yet to be communicated, the Papal protocol team will be welcomed to the country by high profile Catholic leaders.
According to the Nyeri Catholic Diocese Archbishop, Peter Kairu, the delegation will oversee the preparations as well as discuss security matters with the relevant government organs.
Archbishop Kairu said the pope will be on a three-day state visit to Kenya.
“We are expecting him to arrive here on November 25 whereby he will be welcomed in the country by President Uhuru Kenyatta since he (pope) is the President of the Vatican,” he said as he rallied faithful from Othaya to arrive in big numbers and welcome the head of the Catholic Church in the world.
