Pope's visit likely to be a public holiday, State house says

23 October 2015, 14:47 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Pope's visit to the country will likely mean a public holiday, State House has announced.

State House spokesman Manoah Esipisu told members of the press Friday morning in Nairobi that Thursday 26 November will likely be a holiday to allow Kenyans avoid the massive traffic snarl-ups and troubles associated with the visit.

" Thursday 26 will likely be declared a holiday because of the major activities that will be taking place," he said.

On the day, there will be a large mass at the University of Nairobi grounds.

The Pope will be in the country from 25 to 27 November.

He will meet President Uhuru Kenyatta on his first day of the tour, while on the second day he will host mass at the University of Nairobi grounds and on the third day will host 200,000 youth at the Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani and later on meet interdenominational leaders.

After he leaves Kenya, the Pope will head to Uganda and Central Africa Republic.
