Kenya's shilling was steady in early trade on Tuesday, supported by expectations of weekly foreign exchange inflows from tea and coffee earnings, while dollar demand was capped by a looming deadline for firms to meet quarterly tax payments.

By 0736 GMT, the shilling was quoted by commercial banks at 101.50/70 against the dollar, little changed from Monday's close of 101.50/60.

The shilling is holding onto a gain of about 0.7 percent against the U.S. currency since the start of 2016.
