Kenya: Inflation edges up in September
September 30, 2015
In September, consumer prices rose 0.27% over the previous month, which was slightly above the 0.21% increase observed in August. September’s result was mainly driven by higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages.
Inflation rose from August’s six-month low of 5.8% to 6.0% in September. As a result, inflation remained within the Central Bank’s inflation target range of 2.5 percentage points around its 5.0% target. Annual average inflation in September rested at August’s 6.3%, which represented the lowest rate in 19 months.
