Botswana's central bank holds lending rate at 5 percent

GABORONE (Reuters) - Botswana’s central bank left its benchmark lending rate unchanged at 5 percent on Tuesday, saying the outlook for price stability was positive.

“Subdued domestic demand and forecasts of (a) modest increase in foreign prices point to a positive inflation outlook in the medium term,” Governor Moses Pelaelo said.
