Bur’i Mohamed Hamza (Somali: Burci Maxamed Xamza, Arabic: البرعي محمد حمزة‎, died 25 June 2016) was a Somali politician. From August 2012 to January 2014, he was a Member of the Federal Parliament of Somalia.

He later served as the State Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Somalia from January to October 2014. He served as the State Minister of Finance until December 2014. He was the State Minister of the Premier's Office for Environment at the time of his death.

Hamza died during an attack by at least four al-Shabab militants on the Hotel Naso-Hablod in Mogadishu on 25 June 2016. His room collapsed on him after it was damaged by a car bomb.[1] The hotel was "frequented by apostate government workers", explained spokesman Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab to Reuters.[2]
