Yesterday the world came to a standstill when Kenya’s football legend, Joe Kadenge passed on. Leaders joined Kenyans on morning of the legend. “We have today lost one of the greatest talents to ever grace a football pitch in our national uniform. Joe Kadenge was a true ambassador for the country and Kenyan soccer. May he rest in eternal bliss. May his spirit inspire more young people to pursue the game.” Raila Odinga

“As I fellowship at Kitengela SDA Church, it’s with great sadness that I’ve learnt of Joe Kadenge‘s death. He was perhaps the most legendary of Kenyan footballers & shall be remembered for his exploits on the pitch. My sincere condolences to his family, friends & all he mentored.” Musalia Mudavadi

His son Oscar confirmed that he died in Meridian Hospital in Nairobi yesterday. The body was transferred to Lee Funeral home.
