Kenyan shilling weakens slightly against the dollar

NAIROBI (Reuters) - The Kenyan shilling weakened slightly against the dollar on Tuesday, driven by demand from the energy sector and merchant importers as trading resumed from Easter holiday, traders said. At 0945 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 101.45/65 per dollar, compared with 101.35/55 at Thursday's close.
