NAIROBI, KENYA: The Kenyan shilling lost ground on Tuesday due to dollar demand from players in the energy sector and importers of merchandise, traders said.

Commercial banks quoted the shilling at 107.15/35 per dollar, compared with 107.05/25 at Monday's close.

The shilling weakened slightly on Monday due to an uptick in dollar demand from merchandise importers after government begun a phased easing of coronavirus-induced movement restrictions last week, traders said.

Commercial banks on Monday quoted the shilling at 107.10/30 per dollar, compared with 107.00/20 at Friday's close.
