Botswana: Data not available at the time of writing.

Kenya: NSE 20 -0.31%, USD 12.5m

A late cross in EQBNK (-1.9%) helped boost activity on a rather slow day as 16.8m shares traded in the name.

Elsewhere, the rest of the market was extremely quiet with nothing on the go in Safcom and EABL.

Mauritius: Semdex +0.54%, USD 830k

A better day in Port Louis, but still nothing to write home about as turnover increased to $830k thanks to some action in SBMH as 29m shares traded in the name.

Nigeria: ASI +3.79%, USD 9.7m

Not much on the go in Lagos today with turnover amounting to a dull $9.7m with some activity in DangCem ($1.2m) and FBNH ($1.1m) the only names breaking the $1m mark. There was a very strange cross in DangCem a couple of seconds before the close with the name closing +8.59% higher. Banks closed the day lower with the sector falling -0.09% thanks to ETI (-1.23%) and Zenith (-1.06%). Consumers (+4.18%) managed to close higher with good performances in NB (+7.83%) and Dangote Sugar (+4.30%).
