NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenya's headline inflation remained unchanged in July at 17.8 percent, the statistics office said on Friday.
Core inflation slipped to 4.5 percent in the same month from 5.8 percent in June, a statement from the statistics office added.
The new rate of underlying inflation, which excludes food prices, means the central bank has now met its target of containing it under 5 percent.
East Africa's biggest economy has been struggling with the rate of inflation since last year when post-election violence hit food production and supply.
The situation was worsened by high prices of commodities like oil in 2008.
