Kenya: bonds

Central bank of Kenya has multiple interests in the development of bond markets. At a fundamental level the government Treasury bond helps to fund budget deficits. It is important to note that Central Bank of Kenya has increased its issuance of long-term Treasury bonds currently with 12-year tenor thus increasing the maturity period of government debt. Also Central Bank acts as agents for the government in various aspects of the management of government debt. They oversee clearance and settlement system and they are responsible for the stability of the financial system often directly supervising banks. This multiplicity of interest means that the policy issues that arise are very diverse.
