Uhuru dances at Kasarani, Pope lashes the corrupt

27 November 2015, 15:57 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta broke into song and dance at Kasarani, with Pope Francis following it up with a serious lashing to the corrupt who he says have licked Kenya into a diabetic fit.

The stage was set for the Pope's arrival at Kasarani but the President took it a notch higher, dancing 'mugithi' style to Joseph Wasira's Omundu Omulosi's song.

Together with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and other leaders such as Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero as well as his Machakos counterpart Alfred Mutua, the President delighted crowds by agreeing to the small jig.

The dance set the stage for the Pope's arrival and his entrance was met with huge cheers from the mostly young 30,000 crowd at the Kasarani grounds.

And when he took to the stage, he did not disappoint, having a go at the corrupt in the country who have bled the nation and caused increased levels of poverty.

" Corruption is easy and sweet but it also leads to diabetes," he stated.

After seeing the poverty on display during his earlier visit to the Kangemi slums, the Pope was ready to hand over a stern message to the country over the vice.

" It leads to hunger and hunger leads to radicalization because there is hunger. It must stop," he said.

He also asked the youth to seek a solution to the vice as they are the future of the nation and it is they that can do something about corruption as a vice.

The Pope will end his three day visit Friday afternoon when he leaves for Kampala Uganda on the next leg of his African tour.
