UBL MD, Nyimpini Mabunda vends UG


UBL’s Managing Director Nyimpini Mabunda is not afraid to lead from the front.
At the just-ended Blankets & Wine Festival, the amiable Nyimpini was seen busy selling the new look Uganda Waragi to revellers. Our snoops found him closing a deal with ann unidentified lady, who bought a Coconut flavoured Uganda Waragi 750ml bottle.
Before we could leave the tent, he had also managed to convince, what looked like South African expatriates to give it a shot at Kololo Sunset and Muyenga Sunrise.
For the uninitiated Kololo Sunset and Muyenga Sunrise have nothing to do with the sun or the physical places. They are the most famous of the 50 cocktails designed by the Uganda Waragi team, in celebration of its 50 years of existence.
Of course, you cannot blame him- Nyimpini has been a marketer for all his life and since he arrived at UBL, two years ago, he has spent all his time re-invigorating the brewers’ brands with his youthful zeal.
