Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has disclosed that Azimio has suspended bipartisan talks citing several issues including the alleged Ruto's involvement in the Jubilee party.
On Tuesday, the Nairobi Senator revealed that the Azimio La Umoja coalition failed to convince the Kenya Kwanza team on various issues that they were to discuss. Sifuna noted that the bipartisan talks failed to reach an agreement on three pressing issues including the cost of Unga, the opening of the servers and suspension of IEBC reconstitution. He added that the Azimio team held the issues dearly in order to establish a better outcome.
"We have had to suspend the Bipartisan dialogue after we could not persuade our friends from Kenya Kwanza to concede to some common sense interim measures," he said.
Azimio and Kenya Kwanza had agreed to front their delegates to help address issues fronted by the opposition side. The Azimio team prioritised the issue of the reconstitution of the electoral commission among its top agendas. To address electoral reforms among other issues, the bipartisan team was narrowed down to a sub-committee of six members.
The new push for Jubilee to be left alone came amid leadership wrangles within the former ruling party. On Tuesday, the Registrar of Political Parties validated the expulsion of Jubilee SG Jeremiah Kioni, Vice Chair David Murathe and Treasurer Kagwe Gichohi. However, on Monday the Political Parties Dispute Tribunal (PPDT) extended orders barring Kega's wing from taking over the party leadership.

Fulgence Kayishema was arrested after 22 years on the run
One of four remaining fugitives from the 1994 Rwandan genocide has been captured, UN prosecutors say.
Fulgence Kayishema was arrested in South Africa on Wednesday, they said. He is expected to face trial in Rwanda.
The former police inspector was charged in 2001 over an incident during which more than 2,000 Tutsi men, women and children were killed inside a Catholic church where they had sought refuge.
Some 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed in the genocide.
According to the indictment, Fulgence Kayishema directly participated in the planning and execution of a massacre of refugees hiding at the Nyange church in Kivumu, Kibuye prefecture, on 15 April 1994.
It says Mr Kayishema, born in 1961, and others tried to burn the church down with the refugees inside. When this failed, they bulldozed it, burying and killing all those hiding there.
Their corpses were then buried in mass graves.
In a statement, The Hague-based tribunal - known as the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (MICT) - hailed the international operation which had made it possible to apprehend Mr Kayishema.
South African police said an elite unit had arrested the suspect at a grape farm in Paarl, in Western Cape province. He had been living under the false name of Donatien Nibashumba.
"The fugitive will remain in custody to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate Court for his first appearance on Friday... pending his extradition to Rwanda," a statement said.
Reacting to the arrest, Rwandan government spokesperson Yolande Makolo tweeted: "Finally."
The Tanzania-based ICTR sentenced more than 60 ringleaders of the genocide, including three over the Notre Dame de la Visitation church massacre.
The church's priest, Athanase Seromba, was sentenced to life in prison in 2008.
The ICTR closed down in 2015, with the remaining cases being taken over by the MICT. However, some of the cases, including Mr Kayishema's, have been transferred to Rwanda for trial.
