NAIROBI, Oct 10 (Reuters) - The weighted average yield on Kenya's 182-day Treasury bill rose to 10.307 percent at the auction on Wednesday from 10.194 percent last week, the central bank said.

The bank said it received bids worth 3.5 billion shillings ($41.18 million) for the 4 billion shillings it had offered, and accepted bids worth 3.34 billion shillings.

Next week the bank will offer 91-day Treasury bills worth 4 billion shillings and 182-day bills worth the same amount.
