NAIROBI (Reuters) – The Kenyan shilling firmed against the dollar on Monday supported by tightening liquidity in the local money market and inflows from diaspora remittances, traders said.
At 0838 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 101.35/55 per dollar, compared with 101.45/65 at Friday’s close.
