Pope Francis visited Uganda today on the second leg of a landmark trip to Africa, with people dancing and rejoicing as he landed.
“This is my third pope,” said 60-year old Henry Mutambo, a Protestant, dressed in slacks and a loose, untucked shirt, who stood waiting on the grass verge close to the presidential palace.
“This latest pope, Francis, cares for all the people, the whole universe, regardless of political or religious affiliation.”
He arrived in Uganda after three days in Kenya. Ugandan Catholic Cardinal Emmanuel Wamala welcomed the pope in Uganda.
