Pope Francis arrived in Uganda on Friday on the second leg of a landmark trip to Africa which has seen him railing against corruption and poverty, with huge crowds celebrating his arrival.The 78-year-old pontiff was given a rapturous welcome as he headed to the presidential palace in the central town of Entebbe, spurning a large vehicle for a small hatchback car, with waving crowds gathered along the roads, four deep in some places.Francis arrived after three days in neighbouring Kenya, where vast crowds also turned out to an open-air mass, and where the pontiff lashed out at corruption and wealthy minorities who hoard resources at the expense of the poor.Police and soldiers armed with assault rifles or batons lined the road and military pickups raced up and down streets around the presidential palace in Entebbe -- some 30 kilometres (20 miles) south of Kampala -- where Francis then met Museveni.
