Why not use sprintf?
exce_str = sprintf('python %s if the first argument is a string %02d with a second integer ergument',string_variable,i1))

If you have access to MATLAB R2014b, you could use the direct interface to Python. This interface supports passing data directly from MATLAB into Python functions.
