ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Pope Francis arrived in the Ugandan capital of Kampala on Friday (November 27) evening where he received a tumultuous welcome from ululating dancers and President Yoweri Museveni, wearing his trademark wide-brimmed hat. Tens of thousands of people lined his route into the city in the biggest crowds of the trip so far. Addressing Museveni and diplomats at State House, Francis spoke of the world refugee crisis. "Our world, caught up in wars, violence, and various forms of injustice, is witnessing an unprecedented movement of peoples. How we deal with them is a test of our humanity, our respect for human dignity and above all, our solidarity with our brothers and sisters in need," he said. Millions of Christians were expected to turn out for public celebrations during the tour. Francis will stay in Uganda until Sunday (November 29), when he is due to travel to the war-torn Central African Republic - his final stop in Africa.
