Pope’s iPad fetches Sh2.8 million at auction

Pope's iPad

An iPad that belonged to Argentina-born Pope Francis went under the hammer for $30,500 (Sh 2.8 million) on Tuesday, auctioneers in Uruguay said.

Montevideo-based auction house Castells said the winning bid was placed by telephone.

Local media threw a spotlight on the iPad last year.

The pope gave it — complete with its His Holiness Francis label and a Vatican certificate of authenticity — to an Uruguayan priest as a gift.

It ended up being donated to a local school by the priest, before being auctioned off to raise money.
