Kenya Inflation Rate Highest Since May 2012
Month-on-month, consumer prices rose 1.67 percent following 1.72 percent gain in the previous month. Cost rose at a slower pace for food and non-alcoholic beverages (3.18 percent from 3.28 percent in the previous month), namely spinach, maize flour, milk, potatoes and maize grain, mainly driven by drought conditions. Meanwhile, cost continued to rise for housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels (0.69 percent from 0.4 percent) mainly due to increases in house rents, cooking fuels and water services.
