NAIROBI (Reuters) – The Kenyan shilling strengthened on Wednesday supported by inflows from diaspora remittances amid thin importer dollar demand and tight liquidity in the local money market, traders said.
At 0837 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 101.25/45 per dollar, compared with 101.40/60 at Tuesday’s close.
