“Dad has not been in good shape. He had complications in breathing and his sight was also failing.
“His condition deteriorated when my sister passed on in the USA earlier this year and he was unable to attend,” Oscar said.
“Kadenge na mpira” was a phrase synonymous to Kenyan football in my childhood.

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. pic.twitter.com/5CNT2m7mf5

Condolences to the family and friends of football legend Joe Kadenge. At his prime, Kadenge was unplayable; he terrorised defenders with dribbles, nutmegs and was a joy to watch. He raised a family of great footballers: Francis, Evans, Rogers and Oscar, who excelled in the sport.

My sincere condolences to his family, friends & all he mentored. pic.twitter.com/MxakLQoajy

I join fellow Kenyans in mourning the legendary Kenyan footballer Mr. Joe Kadenge who passed away this morning. Mr. Kadenge emerged as a national star in the 1950’s when he debuted in the Kenyan Premier League inspiring a generation of footballers & enthusiasts countrywide.

The curtain has fallen on our football legend Joe Kadenge. His football artistry equalled modern day Thierry Henry, Christian Ronaldo, George Weah, Samuel Etoo etc. We must have a proper policy for the welfare of our sports heroes/heroines. RIP Joe.
