Kenya has shown economic resilience amid uncertainty -cenbank chief

NAIROBI, Nov 24 (Reuters) - Kenya's economy has displayed "extraordinary resilience" in the face of political uncertainty, the central bank governor said on Friday, attributing that to its diversity and small and medium enterprises.

Patrick Njoroge said he expected the economy to expand 5.1 percent this year, down from an initial forecast of 5.7 percent, before expanding at a faster pace in 2018. (Reporting by Duncan Miriri; Editing by Peter Graff)
