    BLANTYRE, Malawi, May 16 (UPI) -- Former Malawi President Bakili Muluzi cannot run for a third term, the country's constitutional court said in dismissing his appeal. The court ruled against Muluzi Friday, ending his hope of running in next week's election, the BBC reported Saturday.

    Allowing him to run, would have violated a law on term limits, the court said.

    Muluzi, who served two consecutive five-year terms and left office in 2004, plans to appeal to the nation's supreme court but will not interfere with Tuesday's election, said his lawyer, Kalekeni Kaphale.

    Muluzi, meanwhile, is to go on trial this year for allegedly stealing $12 million in aid money during his time as president, the British network reported.

    In Tuesday's election, President Bingu wa Mutharika of the Democratic Progressive Party is seeking a second term. His opponent is John Tembo of the Malawi Congress Party.

    Hapana, nadhani anatufanya tutie akili wakati wa kuandika Katiba. Katiba inataka usifululize zaidi ya mihula miwili. Muluzi anasema ameshapumzika, na hajajaribu kutumikia zaidi ya miaka miwili mfululizo.

    MALAWI CONSTITUTION: "The President, the First Vice-President and the Second Vice-President may serve in their respective capacities a maximum of two consecutive terms"

    Ulafi tu wa madaraka!

    Muluzi ajibu kwanza tuhuma za rushwa ya zaidi ya dola 12 milioni!

    Huyu jamaa ni hovyo kweli. Alipoulizwa kwa nini anataka kurudi Ikulu alisema kuwa anataka kumwondoa rais wa sasa, Bingu wa Mutharika. Hana sababu nyingine wala vision mpya zaidi ya kulipa kisasi.

    Nadhani anataka uraisi ili aweze kuficha huo wizi. Hii ndiyo Dunia bwana. Tunaishi kwa trick kila kikukicha. Bila hizo dunia haiwezi kuwa tamu kama ilivyo
