Joe Kadenge's life and death poke on our culture

What you need to know:

  • Joe Kadenge died without knowing that he was loved. Only after his death did we pour our love for him without restraint.
  • Several times he was rushed to hospital and each time his family appealed for help but that never came through.
  • We must stop ignoring the needs of fellow human beings, only to pamper them in death.
  • Funerals also need not be an expensive affair; we need funeral insurance packages that accommodate our cultures.

As dust settles on legendary footballer Joe Kadenge’s grave, let us be reminded by author George Sand, whose real name was Amantine Lucile Aurore Dupin, that “There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.”
