The Central Bank of Kenya has decided to extend for a further 6 months its measure allowing money transactions via mobile phones to be charge-free for users. The money issuing institution says it wants to reduce direct and indirect contacts between people in this context of the global health crisis.
In a statement published on June 18, US rating agency Moody’s announced it has changed the outlook for BMCE Bank of Africa to negative, from stable. The reason, Moody’s said, is the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic on the already weak economy in sub-Saharan Africa where the bank is present.
Ratings agency S&P Global on Friday affirmed its 'AAA/A-1+' long- and short-term issuer credit assessment of the African Development Bank (AfDB) with a stable outlook.
The rating agency positively assessed the Bank’s very strong financial risk profile, very strong capital adequacy, strong funding and liquidity, extraordinary shareholder support and adequacy of its governance and management.
“We are therefore affirming our ‘AAA’ long-term issuer credit rating on the AfDB,” S&P Global stated.
