AFRICA WEEK AHEAD: Kenyan Inflation Figures; Oil, Gas Conference

Kenya is scheduled to announce its latest inflation data from March 29. Price growth in East Africa’s biggest economy slowed for the third straight month in February to 16.7 percent.

Kenya hosts the third Eastern Africa Oil, Gas & Energy Week, which begins today and continues until March 28.
