​Kenyan shilling under pressure from importers, trading in tight range

    NAIROBI, Sept 13 (Reuters) - The Kenyan shilling was
under pressure against the dollar on Wednesday due to importer
and corporate demand but was seen trading in a tight range,
unlikely to reverse previous gains, traders said. 
    At 0853 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at
102.80/103.00 per dollar, compared with Tuesday's close of
102.70/90.
    The shilling rose to its highest level since March 27 on
Friday, driven by hard currency inflows that caused banks to
trim their dollar holdings.
