Pray tell, will KES "depreciation" affect exporters negatively? smile This will actual HELP the economy by making consumer imports that do not add to the productive capacity of the country (eg luxury cars) more expensive.

Really? Pls check imports vs exports, it will shock you. Why do you think CBK has been managing the rate so closely?

Way overdue. Waiting for around 107 to assess the momentum behind the depreciation.
The main purpose of the stock market is to make fools of as many people as possible.

Fake news, the highest the USD went yesterday was 103.20 level.

We may see KES retrace at this price.

I was in town today and I noticed the populace is significantly lower than usual.
Is this a sign that the economy is not doing well or could it be as a result of strict traffic (Michuki) rules pushing idlers out of the city?.

Cargo charges on the standard gauge railway (SGR) from Mombasa to Nairobi will rise by up to 79 per cent from January 1 in bid to raise more revenue to pay the Chinese operator.

Kenya Railways said the cost of transporting a 20-foot container from Mombasa to Nairobi will increase to $500 (Sh51,275) from Sh35,000, a 46.5 per cent rise

Hauling the larger 40-foot container will cost up to Sh$700 (Sh71,785), from the current Sh40,000, reflecting a 79.9 per cent rise.

This is partly the Kashogi death divided. The Saudis are desperate to appease Amerika, hence are opening the crude oil taps. Trump just confirmed as much in one of his many twits.
