NAIROBI, Jan 28 (Reuters) - The Central Bank of Kenya sought to mop up 4 billion shillings ($45.7 million) from the market using repurchase agreements, it said on Monday.
The bank has persistently mopped up liquidity since last year to support the shilling, which has also helped the weighted average interbank rate to rise for 10 straight sessions to 6.4 percent on Friday. ($1 = 87.4500 Kenyan shillings)
