Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Kenya’s All-Share Index fell for a second day, losing 0.4 percent to 54.92 in Nairobi.

Nigerian Breweries Plc (NB NL), the country’s biggest brewer by market value, slid 3.6 percent to 95.45 naira, the biggest decline since Dec. 30, as Stanbic IBTC Bank Plc said earnings for brewing companies will be lower in 2012 on input costs.
