Pope visits Kenya slum, feels "very much at home"

KANGEMI, Kenya -- Pope Francis began his last day in Kenya in the kind of place where, as he put it, "I feel very much at home."

The Kangemi slum is one of 11 that proliferate in and around the largest city in East Africa, reports CBS News correspondent Allen Pizzey. It's packed with 50,000 of some of the poorest of the poor.

But Francis extolled what he called the wisdom that is born of stubborn resistance in such places.

Listing the numerous problems that plague slums, from lack of infrastructure and clean water to crime and violence, he took a sideswipe at the political elite and called for cities that have a place for all.

Pope Francis fears mosquitoes more than terrorists on his trip to Kenya

While the Pope was in the slums, a stadium full of young people practiced a Mexican wave to greet him. The festive atmosphere grew to the point where the emcee even persuaded a line of bishops to go on stage in a dance contest. They were eventually joined by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and his wife.

But it was Pope Francis who stole the show.

A series of prepared questions from a young woman addressed tribalism, radicalization and the issue that seemed to concern them most: corruption.

Francis told them that while there was corruption even in the Vatican, "corrupt people do not live in peace."

The message, delivered in Spanish but translated for the crowd, went down well.

Pope Francis' next stop is Uganda, where he'll hold ceremonies to honor Anglican and Catholic martyrs. He is then scheduled to go to the Central African Republic -- a leg of the trip Vatican officials insist is still on, in spite of ongoing violence.
