Interest rates look set to stay unchanged after this week's monetary policy committee meeting given concern about expected big power price increases and after a string of rate cuts this year. Reserve Bank governor Tito Mboweni said last week the monetary accommodation offered already - 5 percentage points in relief - should be enough to pull the economy out of recession. That, and an announcement by electricity utility Eskom that it will seek price increases of 45 percent for the next three years, have dulled lingering hopes of a cut. - Reuters
