NAIROBI, April 18 (Reuters) - Kenya's central bank sought to mop up 10 billion shillings ($12 million) from the market on Thursday using repurchase agreements (repos).
The bank has consistently used repos to support the shilling , which is almost 3 percent stronger so far this year, by making it expensive to fund long dollar positions.
