Football legend rushed to hospital
According to reports, the football legend was rushed to hospital by his children and was admitted at the High Dependency Unit after he suffered a stroke.
Standard reported that one of his sons said 83 year-old Kadenge had not talked for two days.
“The doctors say it is a stroke and he has not been able to talk for the past two days and we are really praying for his quick recovery,” said his son Oscar Kadenge.
He added that he believes Kadenge’s stroke could be because of his daughter who died in the United States on Sunday.
He suffered another stroke in 2006.
In 2016, Kadenge collapsed while he watched a football match in Jericho’s Camp Toyoyo grounds and was rushed to hospital.
Reports said that he collapsed because he had not taken any meal on that day.
Joe Kadenge is considered one of the best footballers Kenya has ever produced. During his time, he played for Maragoli United, AFC Leopards and Harambee Stars as an attacking midfielder.
