El Nino rains to hit hard during Pope's visit?
25 November 2015, 13:43
Nairobi - The Meteorological department has warned Kenyans that the much anticipated El Nino rains might cause havoc during Pope Francis' visit to the country.
Director of the Meteorological services James Kongiti says that there is prediction that the rains will hit hard from Thursday when the Pope begins his visit.
The Pope is expected to host a huge mass in the city which will be attended by close to 1 million people.
The Mets though, believe that the rains will come after the mass is done.
" There will be showers in the afternoon which will be the aftermath of a heavily clouded and overcast morning in the city," he warned.
Mass is expected to kick off just after 10 AM local time and will be attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Kongiti also expects there to be more rain on Friday.
" There will likely be rains on Friday that will continue through to the weekend in Nairobi," he added.
The Pope's three day stay in the country will be centred around Nairobi.
