Pope Francis was seen earlier today leaving Rome boarding a vessel herded for Africa. The Pope will be in Africa for a 7-day tour of Mozambique, Madagascar and Mauritius. Climate and post-conflict peace are on the agenda of the Vicar as he visits the sub Saharian Part of Africa for the second time.
There is fear that the upcoming elections in Mozambique may be marred with violence and the Pope is expected to emphasise the need to strengthen Mozambique’s fragile peace process.
He will also address issues that have anything to do with protecting the environment, tackling climate changes and promoting sustainable development.
