Tanzania’s Kikwete Says Burundi Should Heed President Term Limit

Tanzanian leader Jakaya Kikwete called on Burundi to abide by a peace agreement that limits presidents to two terms in office, amid speculation President Pierre Nkurunziza may seek a third mandate.

“Anyone who wants to be elected must respect Arusha Accords, Burundi’s constitution and election law,” Kikwete told reporters late Thursday in Burundi’s capital, Bujumbura, at the conclusion of a visit to the East African nation.
