Long walks, long queues as Kenyans head to Papal mass

26 November 2015, 08:47 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Kenyans were forced to walk long distances and brave long queues to attend the Papal mass, one they would not miss for anything.

Some walked as long as 7 kilometers and then were forced to line up for three or more as they approached the University of Nairobi grounds where the mass would be held.

The queues stretched from as far as the Haile Selassie roundabout all the way to the University grounds.

As many as 1 million people are expected to attend the mass.

There were stringent security checks for all those approaching the site, with the levels of security at the highest level thanks to security threats from Somalia's Al Shabaab terror group.

" I walked from Nairobi Hospital and have stood in the rain for 2 hours and we are still not moving," Jane Kandui, a civil servant told News24.

" I have been forced to let the children go back home as it is not conducive here for them," she added.

Others spent the night in hotels in the city as they awaited an early morning thanks to the mass.

" I live in Kitengela but stayed in a hotel to wake up very early to come to mass because I knew it would be crazy," Byrone Njagi a businessman said.

Police had a difficult time trying to control the large crowds, obviously excited by the arrival into the country of the world's iconic religious leader.
