Emerging Markets Update - InFocus: Kenya
The Central Bank of Kenya is expected to cut the key lending rate when the Monetary Policy Committee meets tomorrow | Expect the Shilling to remain week for at least the next 3 months unless economic or other data (e.g. COVID-19 trajectory) surprises the market on the upside | Tomorrow's expected interest rate cut follows this morning's release of weaker growth on 2019 of 5.4% compared to 6.3% in 2018 | Weaker growth in 2019 is partly attributed to a near-50% drop in the pace of growth in agriculture - 3.6% v 6% in 2018
