Council of Governors chairperson Anne Waiguru has said the Kilifi cult incident lays bare the reality of deception and radicalisation.
In a statement on Tuesday, Waiguru questioned why the activity has been going on undetected for years
She said the country needs to find a way to deal with all forms of radicalisation.
"The unfortunate events around Paul Mackenzie of Shakahola have laid bare the ugly reality of deception and radicalisation by cults," she said.
"Questions abound on how this could have gone on undetected for years. What has happened to our social, institutional and legal structures?"
Waiguru added that such cult activities should not be happening in the country.
Her sentiments come in the wake of a debate on the regulations of churches in the country.
This is after police exhumed 83 bodies from shallow graves in an 800-acre farm linked to controversial preacher Paul Mackenzie.
Mackenzie allegedly told his followers to starve themselves to death. The controversial preacher was arrested on April 15.
Leaders have come out to condemn the act of faulting security agencies for sleeping on their job.
President William Ruto has also condemned the act, terming it terrorism.
Former Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi, on the other hand, questioned why such acts occurred under the nose of security officers and they still went undetected.
The Kenya Red Cross Society said some 213 persons who are linked to the controversial Malindi pastor are missing.
Of the 213 individuals, 112 are aged below 18 years.
The farm is located in the Shakahola forest in Kilifi County.
