Kenya central bank to hold rate-setting meeting on May 27


NAIROBI (Reuters) – The Kenyan central bank’s Monetary Policy Committee will hold its next rate-setting meeting on May 27, it said on Friday.

At its April meeting, the bank cut its benchmark lending rate to 7.0% from 7.25%, saying action to cushion the impact of the coronavirus was having an effect, but the bank needed to do more, due to the adverse economic outlook.
