NAIROBI, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Kenya's central bank said on Friday it was in the repurchase agreements (repos) market to mop up 5 billion shillings ($58.8 million) in excess liquidity.
The central bank has frequently intervened with repos this year to support the shilling and drain liquidity. ($1 = 85.0000 Kenyan shillings)
