"It's the symbol of Uganda.” 

The Pope gave him a medallion of St. Martin of Tours and a copy of his Apostolic Exhortation 'Evangelii Gaudium.'

"It deals with faith and social issues. With the poor and development.” 

"Thank you, your Holiness. I'm going to read it and when you come to Uganda we will  talk about it.”

As usual, before leaving the Pope thanked the president for his visit and asked him to pray for him. 

"Thank you you Holiness. I will pray."
