NAIROBI (Reuters) - The Kenyan central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee will hold its next rate-setting meeting on Sept.23, the bank said on its website on Wednesday.

At its last meeting in July, the bank held its benchmark lending rate at 9.0%, saying inflation expectations were within the target range and the economy was operating close to its potential.
