Jubilee, CORD leaders forget politics, unite in Pope's visit

26 November 2015, 17:11 William Korir

Nairobi - Politics? What politics? Pope Francis came to the country carrying a message of peace, one which resonated with the political class.

Young and old, both classes of the political folk were united in the Pope's visit to the country and the usual tittle tattle of the political landscape quickly forgotten.

The government and opposition, so used to haggling over small issues this time round stood hands held as they celebrated the arrival of an iconic individual to the country.

Government leaders could be seen deep in quiet conversation with their opposition counterparts at State House as well as the University of Nairobi grounds where the Pope made his public appearances.

If only it could be that way every day of the week.

The old folk, retired Presidents Daniel Moi and Mwai Kibaki were also there, happy to make rare appearances on a stage everyone would love to be in.

Gladly, none of them got a serious opportunity to speak. Maybe they could have had their usual political talk on the grandest of stages.

They did not.

The best photos of the Pope's visit if you ask many, will be the ones showing the country's political leaders together, happy to be in the presence of a great man and happy to be there to represent Kenyans.

If only it could remain that way for good.
