Kenyans to end tribalism and corruption urged by Pope Francis

Pope Francis has urged Kenyans to unite and take a stand against the destructive effects of tribalism.

During a speech to young people in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, he got the audience to hold hands to symbolise that they stood together as one nation.
Kenya was shaken by inter-ethnic violence after elections in 2007 in which 1,200 people died.

The pontiff also made an impassioned plea against corruption, saying: “Corrupt people don’t live in peace.”

The Pope has now landed in Uganda, and then on Sunday travels to the Central African Republic (CAR), which has been hit by serious violence between Christian and Muslim militias in recent years.
