Kenyans have mourned him and AU Special Envoy for Infrastructure Raila Odinga has recognized the late 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. pic.twitter.com/5CNT2m7mf5

It is still the first week of July and it has robbed significant people in the republic.
Bob Collymore died on the 1st July after succumbing to cancer, lawyer Karanja Kabage died on the 6th and today the football star has passed on.
Thoughts and prayers are with the family.
