Mwamba Rugby Football Club, famously known as Kulabu, is a Kenyan rugby union club based in Nairobi. The club was founded in 1977 with the aim of promoting rugby among indigenous Kenyans when the game was still dominated by the whites in the country. The club played and still plays at the Nairobi Railways Club next to Uhuru Park since its formation. It plays in the Kenya Cup, the premier rugby competition in Kenya.
