“Liquidity remains a main challenges for interbank as market continue to be under intense pressure to fund their books. The shilling liquidity tightness continued,” Standard Chartered Bank said in a Daily Market statement:

“In the turn of events which worsened the situation, National Microfinance Bank (NMB) pulled all money extended to interbank players to settle some obligations. 

“This caused much pressure on players since NMB was the key liquidity provider and their absence is expected to see market rates spiking further”.
