You can use fsolve from Optimization Toolbox. Take the real and complex parts of everything in sight so that the arguments are (k1,k2) and the result is (freal,fcomplex), where f is the value of the lefthad side of your equation. Start fsolve at a whole lot of different points and gather the solutions.
