Soccer star Joe Kadenge has prepared a minute-long video with wishes he would like fulfilled before his death.
The former AFC Leopards player and Kenyan striker has requested to meet the President, whom he has wished well and asked to steer the country to success.
Kadence says “There are people in the government that I would like to meet. First and foremost, President Uhuru Kenyatta, I would like to meet you before I die,”.
“It seems my body doesn’t like me anymore. I would also like to meet the retired Presidents. You remember the old men… I would like to see them.”
These are Daniel Moi and Mwai Kibaki. Kadenge said he would like to pay the three leaders his last respects before “God calls me”, to say goodbye and ask them to grow Kenya.
The 81-year old suffered a stroke in January 2006. Kadenge collapsedat Camp Toyoyo grounds in Jericho, Nairobi, while watching a football match last October.
He was later hospitalised with diabetes and high blood sugar level complications but is now recuperating at home in South B estate. A fund raiser for his treatment will be held at Railways club on Friday.
