Kenyan sales of new motor vehicles declined by 1 percent in April from a year ago, the Kenya Motor Industry Association said.

Vehicle sales fell to 938 units last month from 947 in April 2010, the Nairobi-based association said in an e-mailed statement today. It didn’t give a reason for the decline.

Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp. (7203) led the sales, followed by Tokyo-based Isuzu Motors Ltd. (7202) and Mitsubishi Corp., according to the association.
