Raila tells Nkurunzinza to withdraw from presidential race

20 May 2015, 12:18 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has told Burundi leader Pierre Nkurunzinza to respect the country’s constitution and withdraw from the presidential race.

“Nkurunzinza should respect the constitution and withdraw from the presidential race,” Raila said in a post on his Twitter handle @RailaOdinga.

Protests have rocked Burundi since Nkurunziza declared that he would vie for presidency for a third term.

According to his opponents, the decision to vie for the third term breaks the constitution and a peace agreement that was signed in 2005 to end an ethnically driven civil war.

Nkurunzinza returned to Burundi last week after a failed coup attempt by a top army general.
