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.
