President Uhuru Kenyatta on Friday kicked off his Official Visit to the State of the Vatican City with a meeting with His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican Palace.

The Pope is the Bishop of Rome, the global Head of the Catholic Church and the sovereign of the independent Vatican City State.

The Head of State proceeded for a private audience with Pope Francis before leading the lean Kenyan delegation that included Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Raychelle Omamo for bilateral talks with their hosts led by Cardinal Bishop Pietro Parolin.
