The requiem mass for the late football legend Joe Kadenge is currently going on at the friends Church along Ngong Road.
Opposition leader Raila Odinga, Makadara MP George Aladwa, Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa and Bungoma Sentator Moses Wetangula are some of the leaders present.
Others present are Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris and Harambee Stars Coach Jacob Ghost Mulee .
Kadenge’s family yesterday held a fundraiser that saw leaders contribute money.
During the fundraiser, Raila stated that plans had been finalised to rename Nairobi’s City Stadium in honour of Kadenge.
“I have talked to Pr Uhuru Kenyatta on the renaming of City Stadium to Joe Kadenge Stadium. Both of us have spoken with Governor Mike Sonko about the same and this will be done in his honour,” Raila stated at the funeral.
