NAIROBI, April 30 (Reuters) - Kenya's central bank sought to mop up 3 billion shillings ($35.78 million) from the market on Tuesday using repurchase agreements (repos).
The bank has actively soaked up liquidity since last year to support the shilling by making it slightly more expensive to fund long dollar positions. ($1 = 83.8500 Kenyan shillings)
