Bamburi Cement is committed to the development of regional rugby. According to Marketing Director, Robert Nyangaya, “The attributes of rugby such as strength, endurance and resilience are similar to those of Bamburi Cement brands, and make such sponsorships appealing to us.”

 

“Bamburi Cement has consistently demonstrated its long-term commitment to sports sponsorship with particular emphasis on rugby development in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania”, he added

 

Besides its title sponsorship of the Bamburi Rugby Super Series tournament, Bamburi Cement is involved in the development of the game through its subsidiary in Uganda – Hima Cement. The company continues to sponsor university side Hima Impis as well as the popular Hima Ten Aside annual tournament.
