How to clear (delete) offline partitions

I'm on Cloudera v6.2 and the Kafka service is down due to a "offline partitions". 


Problem is that the error will not clear. So, now I'm looking for a method of deleting these offline partitions. 

The error, as it presents itself in Cloudera Commander is: 


under the "offline partitions test"... "there are 66 offline partitions" 

- subsequently, we are unable to write to the "broken" topics at this point... 

So, the solution (as I see it) is to simply clear the partitions. 


Has anybody encountered this issue and can offer a workaround or solution?

Found a work-around. 
Solution is to cleanup the partitions manually.
