Consumer prices rose 0.35 percent month-over-month in January 2019, following a 0.65 percent gain in the previous month. Price pressure weakened as cost fell for transport (-1.40 percent vs 1.34 percent), mainly due to decreases in pump prices of petrol (-8.67 percent) and diesel (-7.86 percent). Also, prices went up at a slower pace for food & non-alcoholic beverages (0.78 percent vs 1.05 percent), namely maize grain (0.53 percent); sifted maize flour (0.75 percent); sugar (-2.56 percent) and beans (0.89 percent). Conversely, monthly inflation ticked up for housing & utilities (0.20 percent vs 0.07 percent), as a result of higher cost of house rents and cooking fuels. Partly contributing to this, were prices of domestic electricity consumption for 50 Kwh as well as for 200 KWh which increased by 1.68 and 1.15 per cent, respectively, attributed to increase in foreign and inflation adjustment charges. Inflation Rate Mom in Kenya averaged 0.57 percent from 2010 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 3.20 percent in April of 2011 and a record low of -1.20 percent in June of 2017.
