Kenyan shilling stable, to gain ground due to remittances

NAIROBI (Reuters) - The Kenyan shilling held steady against the dollar and was expected to strengthen due to inflows from remittances and offshore investors buying government debt, traders said. 

At 0629 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 100.65/85 per dollar, same as Monday's close.
