Kenyan shilling stable, eyes post-election developments

NAIROBI (Reuters) - The Kenyan shilling traded flat on Wednesday in a quiet session, as the market waited to see whether the country remained calm after the Aug. 9 general election, traders said.

At 0720 GMT commercial banks quoted the shilling at 119.20/119.40, same level it closed at on Monday.

Markets were closed on Tuesday as it was a holiday to allow Kenyans to participate in the election where voters were picking the next president, legislators and other officials.

Preliminary results from the poll showed a tight race between the two main presidential candidates vying to replace outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta.
