NAIROBI (Reuters) - The Kenyan shilling firmed against the dollar on Friday supported by inflows of hard currency from offshore investors buying government debt and banks’ shares at the stock market, traders said.

At 0833 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 102.70/90 per dollar, compared with 102.80/103.00 at Thursday’s close.
