Mean Machine RFC is a Rugby union club based in Nairobi, Kenya. It is the representative side of the University of Nairobi and was founded in 1977 during the time when rugby union in Kenya was predominantly played by white settlers and expats. In their inaugural year they won the Kenya Cup. During the 1980s the club was forced to close due to political pressure after the 1982 coup d'état attempt, and many players would have to play for other clubs. However the club soon recovered and went on to win many more titles, such as the Enterprise Cup, Nakuru 10s a side and the Impala Floodlit.
