NAIROBI, Sept 30 (Reuters) - The weighted average yield on Kenya’s 364-day Treasury bills jumped to 20.695 percent at an auction on Wednesday from 16.301 percent last week, the central bank said.

During the same auction, the yield on the 182-day Treasury bill shot up to 20.331 percent from 14.551 percent last week, the bank said.
