Kenyan inflation dips to 6.8% year-on-year in November

NAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s inflation eased slightly to 6.8% year-on-year in November from 6.9% a month earlier, the statistics office said on Thursday.

On a month-on-month basis inflation was 0.2%, compared to 1.0% in October, the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) said in a statement.

Transport, housing and utilities, and food were major contributors to the East African nation’s year-on-year inflation, KNBS said.
