Kenya’s Inflation Rises to Ten-Month High
Kenya’s annual inflation rose to 5.9% in March, the highest rate in 10 months, from 5.8% in February. The inflation rate maintained an upward trend mainly due to the increase in the price of fuel and some food items during that period. According to data from the Central Bank of Kenya, fuel price went up by 15.8% while the price of food items rose 6.7%. Non-fuel and non-food prices increased by 2.3%.
