UPDATE 1-Kenya's central bank sells dollars to the market after shilling weakens-traders

 (Adds quotes from trader)
    By John Ndiso
    NAIROBI, May 24 (Reuters) - The Kenyan shilling
weakened against the dollar on Thursday due to end of month
demand prompting the central bank to pump dollars into the
market, traders said. 
    "The shilling has corrected itself because it was around
101.05/25 in the morning and now it is at 101.00/10," said one
trader."
    "We are seeing some support from the central bank...in the
first hour or so of today's session," said a trader from another
commercial bank.
    At 0800 GMT, commercial banks quoted the shilling at
101.00/20 per dollar, compared with 100.80/90 at Thursday's
close.
