President Uhuru Kenyatta on Sunday honored ailing football legend Joe Kadenge’s dying wishes by paying him a visit at his South B home in Nairobi.

In his career, Kadenge played for Maragoli United, and scored the fastest ever goal in the Kenyan Premier League.
He also played club football for Abaluhya United, winning the Kenyan Premier League in 1966.
