    NAIROBI, Sept 20 (Reuters) - The Kenyan and Ugandan shillings are seen easing against the dollar in the next week, while the Tanzanian shilling and Zambian Kwacha are expected to firm, traders said.

    KENYA

    The shilling is expected to weaken in the days ahead, weighed down by importers, especially from the oil sector, buying a globally stronger dollar to meet end of month needs.

    At 1300 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at 84.75/95 per dollar, 0.5 percent stronger that last Thursday's close of 84.30/50.


    "Towards end month we expect to see increased dollar demand by oil importers which could pressure on the shilling a bit," said a trader at one commercial bank.


    Technical analysis charts showed the shilling's resistance at 85.00, and traders said if it were to cross, it could weaken to touch the 85.50 level.


    Dickson Magecha, a trader at Standard Chartered Bank, said rising yield on the debt market could encourage banks to hold shillings as interbank interest rate edge up.


    The weighted average interbank rate inched up to 6.7 percent on Wednesday from 6.6 percent the previous session.



    UGANDA

    An exit of offshore investors from Uganda's debt market is seen pressuring the Ugandan shilling against the dollar over the next week, traders said.

    At 1125 GMT commercial banks in Kampala quoted the currency of Africa's biggest coffee exporter at 2515/2525, weaker than last Thursday's close of 2500/2510.


    "Definitely the downbeat mood of foreign investors will likely keep chipping away at the shilling in the next few days," said Dickson Musoni, trader at KCB Uganda. "But depending on whether yields fall further or bottom out at these levels, as is the sense in the market, the drop should be moderate."


    The weighted average yield on the east African country's benchmark 91-day Treasury bill fell nearly 300 basis points to 10.017 percent, reflecting the effects of the central bank's sustained loosening cycle.


    NIGERIA

    The Nigerian naira will likely remain range bound next week against the dollar as anticipated dollar flows from oil companies' month-end sales and offshore investors buying local debt subdue pressure on the local currency.

    The naira was trading at 157.90 to the dollar on the interbank market at 1014 GMT, weaker than the 157.80 it closed at last Thursday.


    Traders said an upsurge in dollar demand from importers continued to outweigh supplies in the market, putting the naira under pressure.


    "Though, we have seen significant inflows of dollars from oil companies and offshore investors buying bonds and treasury bills, increased in demand for the dollar has dulled the impact of the flows into the market," one dealer said.


    Traders said the naira should trade within the 157-158 range next week supported by more dollars flow into the market from oil companies buying naira to meet their local obligations and offshore investors participating in treasury bills auction.


    TANZANIA

    Tanzania's shilling is seen gaining against the dollar in the next week, helped by a slowdown in demand for the dollar and an expected liquidity squeeze on the local currency.

    Commercial banks in Dar es Salaam quoted the shilling at 1,570/1,578 to the dollar on Thursday, marginally weaker than 1,569/1,575 a week ago.


    "The shilling will likely strengthen slightly against the dollar next week due to an expected liquidity squeeze. Some corporate players are also expected to sell dollars towards the end of the month," said Patrick Kapella, chief dealer at First National Bank Tanzania.


    "We expect the shilling to trade in the marginal range of 1,565-1,575 next week. There are small U.S. dollar inflows coming in from tourism at the moment, but nothing much to justify any big move in the market."


    Traders said they expect the shilling to trade in a tight range in the coming days.


    "The market has been very quiet ... we have not seen any big demand from any sector. Next week being the end of quarter, we expect those holding dollars to sell in order to get shillings for tax obligations," said Theopistar Mnale, a trader at Tanzania Investment Bank.


    ZAMBIA

    The Zambian kwacha is expected to firm going into next week as rising demand for the dollar reduces.

    The kwacha continued to be bearish this week on the back of dollar demand from the energy sector, which outstripped supply from the mines.


    At 1123 GMT on Thursday, commercial banks quoted the kwacha at 5,055 from 5,015 a week ago, but commercial bank traders said the local unit was likely to appreciate.


    Zambia's currency jumped to 4,640 to the dollar in July, its highest since April, 2011, as a new law limiting the use of dollars continued to drive up demand for the currency of Africa's biggest copper producer.


    GHANA

    Ghana's cedi (GHS) could dip against the dollar next week on improved corporate greenback demand for seasonal imports unless the central bank intervenes, traders said.

    The local unit recorded its highest day-on-day depreciation versus the US dollar in three months on Wednesday, dipping 0.55 percent on increased dollar demand by local firms for their imports.


    "Going into next week, we see the local currency staying within the current band, or further lose its recent gains," said Barclays Bank trader Jacob Brobbey.


    The cedi traded at 1.9175 to the dollar at 1300 GMT on Thursday, down from the previous day's close of 1.9125.


    Traders said the central bank, which has supported the cedi in recent past, had not been in the market in past two weeks.


    A recent $1.5 billion cocoa syndicated loan could help "mute" any sharp surge in demand, Brobbey said, projecting that the dollar-cedi could trade the broad 1.9000-1.9400 range for the rest of the year.

    Mzee nngu007, haya mambo usiyafanyie siasa nyingi. Haya ni mambo ya kitaalam. Huwezi kuipongeza currency kwa kuonyesha stregnth mpaka utakapohakikisha kubaki stable kwenye new position. Hata kipindi cha Mkulo shilingi ya Tanzania iliongezeka thamani na kushuka, huo ni mzunguko wa kawaida kwa kila currency. Tuvute subira tuone kama tuna sababu ya kujipongeza au bado...

    Sikuweka hii Habari bila ya kuangalia kiutaalamu NJE na NDANI ya Nchi; Wakati wa Mkulo na kabla ya kubadilishwa

    Shilingi ilikuwa Inashuka thamani mpaka ilikuwa inaivuruga kichwa BANKI KUU; Haiwezekani Shillingi yetu

    Ilikuwa inashuka zaidi ya UGANDA ukiangalia kiuchumi sisi tuko Bora au Kenya devaluation yake sio kama yetu

    Wakati Ukiangalia EXPORT and IMPORT kila Mwaka sisi tuna kipya cha kuexport...

    What I'm against is the perception that a devaluation is imminent...

    Hilo halina ukweli, huwezi kuwa Waziri bila kuwa mbunge kwa sheria za Tanzania za sasa, labda Katiba mpya ya Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete ndiyo abadili.

    Siyo kweli mkuu. Dr. William Mgimwa (waziri wa fedha) ni mbuge wa kuchaguliwa na wananchi wa jimbo la Kalenga huko Iringa, tangu mwaka 2010.

    Sikuongelea kuhusu SHILINGI haijawahi kugain Strength... Ninaongelea kwa Sasa hivi toka Achukue Uwaziri

    Shilingi ilikuwa inashuka; Angalau sasa tumeona Imegain Strength... Sikuwa naongelea utawala wooote wa

    Mkulo Nilikuwa naongelea wakati yuko Madarakani kabla hajabadilishwa...

    Sio lazima Uwe na International Finance kujua Mambo ya Inflation; Kama Umefanya kazi WALL STREET

    kwa Miaka Miwili inatosha kuwa na hiyo knowledge... SIO kujua INTERNATIONAL FINANCE... watu

    wame-practice... Elimu ya VITENDO...
