Over Rwf47.4m was realised in turnover at the Rwanda Stock Exchange (RSE) yesterday, a decline from Rwf73.9m on Tuesday. This was mainly due to a drop in Bralirwa and Bank of Kigali share prices, as well as a decrease in Bralirwa's traded volumes, according to RSE market report.

This affected the Rwanda Share Index, which shed 0.67 points to close at 262.77 points compared to 263.44 points on Tuesday.

Bralirwa traded 92,800 shares during yesterday's session compared to 161,300 shares that exchanged hands on Tuesday. Bank of Kigali traded 20,100 shares, an increase from 4,300 shares sold the previous day.

Bralirwa shares traded at between Rwf450 and Rwf459 a share, but closed at Rwf459, down by Rwf1 compared to Tuesday's closing price of Rwf460.

The Bank of Kigali counter, which also shed Rwf1 yesterday, traded at between Rwf280 and Rwf285 a share, closed at Rwf285.

Kenya Commercial Bank, Nation Media Group and Uchumi Supermarkets shares last transacted at Rwf185, Rwf1,200 and Rwf175, respectively.
