Legendary footballer Joe Kadenge is dead

Legendary Kenyan footballer Joe Kadenge is dead.

Confirming his death, his son Oscar Kadenge said he died at a Nairobi Hospital, where he has been receiving treatment.

The former Harambee Stars footballer died at the age of 84.

Stroke

In the month of February, the former footballer was rushed to Nairobi hospital by his children and was admitted at the High Dependency Unit after he suffered a stroke.

According to his sons, Kadenge had not talked for two days at the time.

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 believed Kadenge’s stroke could have been because of his daughter who had died in the United States.

He suffered another stroke in 2006.

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.
