Nairobi crowned Joe Kadenge Football tournament champions

Nairobi County was crowned the champions of Joe Kadenge Greatest Inspirational Football Tournament played on Sunday at City stadium in Nairobi.

The tournament was meant to honour the late Joe Kadenge, the legendary footballer who died a week ago after a long illness at 84.

A total of eight teams took part in the tournament that were played in a round-robin format, where veterans players donned replicas of Leopards kits, the colour being the difference between the teams. While some of the kits were stripped blue and white, which is the official colour of Leopards jerseys, others were stripped green and white.

Kadenge started his football career as an attacking midfielder and second striker for the defunct Maragoli United, before crossing over to Leopards (then Abaluhya United) in 1996

The champions won all their matches to carry the day on 19 points as focus shifts to the July 19 when the legendary player will be buried at his Hamisi home in Vihiga County.
