The shilling gained against the dollar yesterday helped by inflows from offshore investors buying Government debt amid subdued oil importer demand for the dollar and high liquidity in the local money market, traders said.

In early trading, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 101.55/75 per dollar, compared with 101.75/95 at Friday’s close.
