Background: The traditional figure of Santa Claus, travelling in a white sleigh drawn by a white pony, stopped rush-hour traffic in Nairobi yesterday (Monday). He made his three mile (5 kms) journey through the city centre in order to put in an appearance at a children's party at All Saints Cathedral.
And about 100 children gave Santa Claus a rousing and affectionate welcome. And he responded by distributing colourfully-wrapped gifts.
Later, Santa climbed back aboard his sleigh and braved the capital's traffic again for his trip back to the North Pole.
