Burundi President Pierre Nkurunziza confirms third-term bid

“Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza has been nominated as a candidate for a third term in office, a move that his opponents say is unconstitutional. Security has been increased and demonstrations banned following opposition calls to step up protests. Speculation about Mr Nkurunziza’s candidacy has led to major protests in the capital Bujumbura in recent weeks. There are fears the political crisis could destabilise a country only recently emerged from civil war.”
