Kanu’s remaining schedule
The former Nigerian international will on Thursday 31st visit the Mulago heart institute to do charity and donate to the institute since he is well known for his heart disease which almost caused his death in his playing days. He has a heart hospital (charity organisation) in Nigeria.

Later he will take time to visit Kawempe/Mulago slum –  playing fields where kids play football and also play with them. The message is all the great footballers in Africa and South America were picked from such areas and played football on hard soil….muddy pitches. The kids can be like him.
