Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale on Thursday, May 25, expressed optimism over the resumption of the bipartisan talks that were called off by Azimio on May 23.
Speaking during an interview on Citizen TV, the member of the bipartisan committee indicated that the stalemate would be resolved before the seven-day lapse.
He indicated that the Azimio team needed to look at the bigger picture and listen to their concerns if the stalemate was to be resolved.
However, Khalwale opined that the issues Azimio was having related to internal differences in the coalition owing to the recent leadership wrangles in the Jubilee Party.
"There is a lot of hope. This is tantamount to temper and the inability to want to see the other side. They will eventually see it.
"The issue we had was on the membership of Jubilee and we already removed Eldas MP Adan Keynan," he stated.
On the other hand, Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna - who was appearing alongside Khalwale opined that the talks risked dissolving owing to the timelines that were set in the framework.
He noted that there were only five days left for the Kenya Kwanza team to respond and address their concerns.
"We are going nowhere, I want to apologise to Kenyans on behalf of Azimio for having wasted time and given them hope that they were going to be something.
"Because of the lack of commitment and seriousness of the other team then we cannot continue. I think this is the end of it" he added.
The bipartisan talks were called off on Tuesday, May 23 with the two factions failing to agree over a number of issues including the alleged interference of Jubilee Party affairs by President William Ruto.
Consequently, Raila and his Azimio team issued a statement over the delays demanding that the talks be completed in the next 30 days.
The ODM boss also alleged that Ruto had lost control of his team with some of the Kenya Kwanza representatives receiving instructions from other quarters of government.
"They are getting different instructions and areas clearly pulling in different directions. Secondly, Kenya Kwanza has no clear direction on whether the talks should proceed or not," the ODM boss stated.
