Stabex International was a proud sponsor of Kenya Day Golf Tournament that took place in Kampala, kitante – kololo grounds on 7th December 2019. This tournament is held annually in Uganda to enable Ugandans to celebrate Kenya’s independence with their Kenyan neighbors in the spirit of East Africa’s integration. It is also used to cement the two countries’ business and tourism sectors. Proceeds from the Tournament are used by the Embassy to undertake CSR activities in Uganda.
Kenyan High Commissioner to Uganda Hon. Kiema Kilonzo graced the event among other dignitaries. He implored the participating countries to embrace golf tourism as a means to strengthen and exploit various business opportunities available for bilateral trade.
Mark Namanya and Brenda Maraka won by playing off handicaps 28 and 30 respectively. They emerged with the best net scores from the rain-soaked course to add more prizes in their budding golfing careers.
The one day event was very colorful especially in the evening when the gathering assembled together and the best performer and the sponsors were awarded.
Namanya and Maraka had the following to say: Namanya, “The front-nine was quite good the back was better than the last time I played it. I’m very happy to win this tournament, though it might come with chopping my handicap I’m not scared and I will continue winning these tournaments”. In Maraka, “The rain was an issue but I’m glad I played and finished. I’m really excited about this and I would like to thank my playing partner Freda who has always encouraged me to play. It has taken a whole village to teach me how to play golf but I think I will continue improving and become a better golfer”.

It gives our brand the opportunity to generate awareness, boost the perceived image of our business, and be seen as an authority in our niche. It also means giving our brand a platform to increase our reach, reconnecting with our customers and generating renewed leads/relationships.
