Kenya’s shilling was slightly stronger against the US dollar on Wednesday, after a big interest rate hike by the central bank a day earlier.

At 1005 GMT, LSEG data showed the shilling trading at 153.15/35 per dollar, compared to 153.25/45 at the close of Tuesday’s session.

Kenyan shilling unchanged in quiet trade

The central bank linked its 2-percentage-point rate hike to efforts to stabilise the shilling, which has struck repeated record lows this year.

Kenya shilling will be in problems in 2024 even more than 23. Overvalued for years and now becoming a real problem . Shame Kenyans will suffer and maybe better to keep those dollars euros and gbp as a investment. When you vote in elections on tribal reasons and not who has the better qualifications then kenya will start being a economy that grows not borrowing from imf or world bank to survive.
