City Lawyer Hillary Cheboi Kibaset has urged Kenyans to be keen on the type of religions they associate with.
In a tweet, the lawyer weighed into the ongoing tragedy in Shakahola terming it "unacceptable and uncalled for".
Several bodies continue to be exhumed in Shakahola forest with victims believed to have been persuaded by their alleged leader Paul Mackenzie to starve in order to meet Jesus.
Cheboi noted that some religions have become retrogressive hence misleading some Kenyans.
" What the country has witnessed in Kilifi under the cult type of religion is uncalled for and unacceptable, I call on Kenyans to be extremely vigilant in the kind of religion they associate themselves with," he tweeted Sunday.
Coast regional commissioner Rhoda Onyancha on Saturday said so far the exhumation has been suspended until Monday
"Operation takes 2 days break to resume on Monday," she said.
So far, 610 people have been reported missing at the tracing centre.
On Friday, detectives exhumed 29 more bodies from the 800-acre Shakahola forest where Mackenzie's followers are believed to have been buried.
The bodies were exhumed from 12 graves within the Shakahola Forest.
A section of leaders has also called on the state to regulate some religious groupings for the well-being of citizens.
President William Ruto vowed that his government will not relent in fighting people who are destroying others in the name of religion.
He said the state will deal with individuals who abuse the word of God in the same way other criminals are treated.
"The actions of a few people won't succeed in putting a blot on the Church. As a government we have decided to deal with the individuals that abuse the sanctity of faith and the word of God in a manner that we deal with all the other criminals," Ruto added.
The President was speaking on Sunday during a church service at AIC Milimani.
He said the church should not be blamed based on the activities of a few people.
Going further, the President asked for more time for the government to investigate the happenings at Shakahola Forest.
"Our security officers are working round the clock so that we can unravel these acts that shame the people who want to abuse religion and cause loss of lives," Ruto said.
