“If it (any decision by Mr Chebukati reached between President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga) is illegal, it is null and void,” Mr Tuju was quoted by The Daily Nation.

“As a referee, he (Mr Chebukati) cannot call the teams and ask them: Hey guys, when do you want us to hold the elections? What rules should we use? In other words, there is no room for dialogue,” Mr Tuju added.

The former Rarieda MP said President Kenyatta will not meet IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati on any poll agreement.

He argued that any dispute on the presidential poll could only be handled by the Supreme Court.
