Pope Francis on October 22, 2017, offered a special prayer intention for Kenya, in comments following the Sunday Angelus in St. Peter’s Square:

“I ask you to unite yourselves to my prayer for peace in the world. In these days I follow with special attention Kenya, which I visited in 2015, and for which I pray so that the whole country is able to address the present difficulties in an atmosphere of constructive dialogue, having at heart the quest for the common good.”
