Kenya central bank sells dollars to banks - traders

NAIROBI, July 17 (Reuters) - Kenya’s central bank sold dollars in the foreign exchange market on Monday to support shilling, traders said.

They said the central bank seemed keen on preventing the currency from slipping below the 104.00 per dollar level. At the close of trade at 1330 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 103.85/104.05 against the dollar. (Reporting by John Ndiso and Duncan Miriri; Writing by George Obulutsa)
