 (Adds central bank dollar sales)
    NAIROBI, July 17 (Reuters) - The Kenya's central bank sold
dollars to commercial banks after the shilling weakened
earlier on Monday, traders said. 
    They said the central bank seemed keen on preventing the
currency from weakening past 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, compared with
103.65/85 at Friday's close.
