About 10,000 Kenyan Security Officials are today high alert to ensure the safety of Pope Francis who will arrive tomorrow, official spokesman Manoah Esipisu said.
According to the Press office of the Holy see, the Pope’s visit to this country will last 46 hours, and immediately after his arrival, he will meet in private with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Later, he will meet with other Kenyan authorities and members of the diplomatic corps accredited in the country.
Kenyan Government has declared November 26 a Public Holiday, because that day the Pope Francis will deliver his homily in the University of Nairobi main campus.
The Supreme pontiff will also deliver speeches at Kasarani Stadium and from the poor suburb of Kangemi, where almost 250,000 people live in squalid conditions.
The Pope’s visit acquires the condition of maximum risk and needs extraodinary security arrangements due to the great number of public activities planned between Kenyan authorities and the Vatican, Esipisu warned.
