The Stanbic Bank Kenya PMI edged lower to 46.3 in July of 2022 from 46.8 in June, pointing to the fourth consecutive month of falling private sector activity and the steepest since April of 2021, as uncertainty around the upcoming election and the impact of strong inflationary pressures dampened demand. Both output and new orders fell at accelerated rates, while business confidence remained muted. More positive was a first rise in employment for three months. While rates of inflation generally eased in July, they remained elevated as higher costs for fuel in particular drove prices higher. source: Markit Economics

Kenya Private Sector Contracts the Most in Over a Year
