Kenya: Inflation inches up in June
June 30, 2015
In June, consumer prices rose 0.30% over the previous month, which was below the 0.81% increase observed in May and marked a seven-month low. June’s lower print reflected that a decrease in the prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages partially offset rising prices in several other categories.
Headline inflation inched up from 6.9% in May to 7.0% in June. Despite June’s rise, annual average inflation eased from 6.7% in May to 6.6% in June.
