NAIROBI- Kenya’s finance ministry has sought proposals from banks and firms to provide lead manager services for the issuance of a new Eurobond, it said on Wednesday, confirming an earlier source-based report by Reuters.

Proceeds from the Eurobond sale, whose amount will be determined at a later date, will be used to fund the 2018/19 (July-June) budget deficit, the ministry said in a response to questions by Reuters, without offering more details.
