Kenyan inflation falls to 4.5 percent in December

(Reuters) - Kenya's year-on-year inflation fell to 4.5 percent in December from 4.73 percent the month before, the statistics office said on Friday, reaching its lowest level for nearly five years.

The slowdown is driven by a slower rise in food and non-alcoholic drink prices, the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics said.
