Kadenge stable after collapsing at Toyoyo

"Had we not rushed him to the ambulance and given him oxygen, it would have been a different story. I think he has a respiratory problem because at that moment he was not breathing well. He had been hit by the sun so much and again putting into perspective his old age, it was prudent we rushed him to hospital," one of the medical personnel told Capital Sport.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 12-  Harambee Stars legend Joe Kadenge was rushed to hospital on Wednesday evening after collapsing while watching a National Super League match at the Camp Toyoyo Ground in Jericho, Nairobi.

Medical personnel who were at the venue came to Kadenge’s rescue after the former striker famed by the ‘Kadenge na Mpira’ phrase fell down while watching a match between Wazito FC and Zoo Kericho.

“Had we not rushed him to the ambulance and given him oxygen, it would have been a different story. I think he has a respiratory problem because at that moment he was not breathing well. He had been hit by the sun so much and again putting into perspective his old age, it was prudent we rushed him to hospital,” one of the medical personnel told Capital Sport.

Kadenge managed to recover to breathe on his own after being taken to the neighbouring Metropolitan Hospital.

Kadenge had earlier watched Nzoia United beat KCB 1-0 in support of one of his sons Evans Kadenge who is the Bungoma based side’s Team Manager.

After the match he had given a talk to the team motivating them to go on with their fight for Kenyan Premier League promotion.

“I know you guys can do it and I have faith in you,” Kadenge told the players after their win.

The Stars legend has been ailing and had been hospitalised a few weeks ago but managed to recover enough to be discharged.
