Burundi president vote bid 'flies in face' of constitution: Kerry

NAIROBI (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday a decision by Burundi’s President Pierre Nkurunziza to seek a third term in office “flies directly in the face” of the constitution.

“We are deeply concerned about President Nkurunziza”s decision,” Kerry told a news conference in Nairobi, adding that recent unrest in Burundi was a result of public concern about that decision and “should be listened to”.
