Shilling gains against the dollar
22 November 2011, 11:03
The shilling touched the Sh90 mark in Monday's trading against the dollar, its strongest performance since August 1 this year.
Forex traders on Monday quoted the shilling at 90.60/80 against the dollar stronger than Friday’s performance of 91.00/20.
This is a 15 per cent gain from the historic Sh107 mark it touched on October 11.
The gains are a shot in the arm for the Central
Bank of Kenya which was forced to increase its key lending rate to its
highest point ever to tame inflation, a decision that has been costly to
short term economic growth.
