Pope In Africa On Visit To Three Nations

Pope Francis has arrived in Mozambique on the start of a tour of Africa nations that will also take in Madagascar and Mauritius.

The Pope is expected to address the country’s fragile peace process and the devastation caused by recent cyclones earlier this year among other issues.

He is the first pontiff to visit the country in more than 30 years and will remain in the capital, Maputo.

The government expects to spend about $325,000 on the Pope’s visit, according to Foreign Minister Jose Pacheco.

It will be his fourth visit to the continent since he became the head of the Catholic Church in 2013, compared to the two his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, made during his eight-year papacy.
