 SOUTH AFRICA MARKETS
 South Africa's rand recovered earlier losses against the
 dollar on Thursday, after the central bank kept domestic
 rates unchanged and moved to dampen market expectations of a
 rate cut this year due to lower oil prices.               
     Stocks ended lower on Thursday as a rise in retailers
 such as Shoprite          failed to offset a slide in gold
 mining houses, which were hit by lower metal prices.
                
 
 AFRICA CURRENCIES
 Nigeria's volatile naira is likely to steady next week on
 dollar sales by oil companies, while East African currencies
 are expected to be supported by central bank
 intervention.               
 
 NIGERIA MARKETS
 Nigerian naira           shed 1.64 percent to close at 189.10
 against the greenback on Thursday, despite dollar sales by
 the central bank and oil companies, dealers said.
                
 
 NIGERIA ECONOMY
 Nigeria expects economic growth this year of 5.54 percent,
 down from an estimated 6.23 percent for 2014, after the
 government trimmed expenditure because of the oil price
 slump, the statistics office said on Thursday.               
 
 KENYA MARKETS
 The Kenyan shilling        was a touch weaker on Thursday on
 dollar demand from importers, while stocks nudged
 lower.

 Tanzania needs urgently to deal with its growing fiscal
 deficit to boost economic growth, which is expected to reach
 7 percent this year, the World Bank said on Thursday.
                
 
 GHANA OIL PRODUCTION
 Ghana's new oil fields are on schedule to start production
 next year as development has passed the half-way stage, lead
 operator Tullow Oil said on Thursday.                    
 
 IVORY COAST EUROBOND
 Ivory Coast aims to issue a Eurobond of less than $1 billion
 next month, Prime Minister Daniel Kablan Duncan said on
 Thursday, as it seeks extra funds to help its economy recover
 after a civil war.               
 
 ANGOLA ECONOMY
 Angola's oil-dependent economy is set to slow this year, key
 infrastructure projects will be shelved and swathes of social
 spending are facing the chop as a global crude price slump
 takes its toll on Africa's second-biggest producer.
