POPE FRANCIS VISIT KENYAN SLUM

Date:

Pope Francis waded into the heart of a Kenyan shantytown, spreading a message of love and lashing out at the elite in a neighborhood that feels largely disenfranchised.

Francis’ visit to Kangemi mirrors his message of service to the poor during his three days in Nairobi.

In the sprawling slum filled with tin-roofed homes, he described injustices against the poor as “new forms of colonialism.”

“Our world has a grave social debt toward the poor who lack access to drinking water because they are denied a life consistent with their inalienable dignity,” he said.

He said the “dreadful injustice of social exclusion” leaves the poor with an unfair distribution of land, and lack of access to infrastructures and basic services.
