UDA presidential candidate William Ruto has pledged to respect the Constitution should he win Tuesday's general election.

Speaking while making his final appeal to Kenyans at Nyayo National Stadium on Saturday, Ruto said he will uphold all Constitutional provisions without fail.

"I want to promise the people of Kenya that I will not participate in anything that undermines the Constitution of Kenya. I will not participate in anything that brings confusion between the separation of powers," Ruto said.

The Deputy President made the pledge before a mammoth crowd that attended the Kenya Kwanza final rally at the stadium.

Ruto said even when push comes to shove and he is required to reach a compromise, undermining the Constitution will not be part of the deal.

"And let me commit, on the 9th when the people of Kenya make their decision as Kenya Kwanza, we will respect," Ruto said, alluding to his willingness to concede defeat if he loses the election.
