He also had to cancel his scheduled trip to three religious sites in the capital after it rain rained ferociously this morning.
On Tuesday, Kerry spent nearly an hour with his convoy trapped in traffic jams from the airport to his hotel. Reporters travelling with Mr Kerry tweeted their frustration.
