The Anglican Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit has called out President William Ruto's administration over growing cronyism in public office appointments.
In a statement, Sapit said such appointments show a lack of accountability in government agencies.
He said government agencies should serve all Kenyans equally.
"There is glaring tribalism and cronyism, particularly about public appointments. There is an apparent lack of accountability and transparency in our institutions. This is not acceptable," Ole Sapit said.
"Let all institutions and government agencies be impartial and efficient, and not simply beholden to political influence, but serve all Kenyans with impartiality."
The Archbishop said poor governance has always been a recipe for political tension.
He also accused the government of slowing down in the fight against corruption.
Ole Sapit also said mismanagement of public resources has become the order of the day.
"Political tensions feed off poor governance, and no number of talks will create harmony if the government fails the accountability test. We see that the government is walking the slippery path by slackening in the fight against corruption," he said.
"To our dismay, impunity in the management of public resources and public affairs is becoming the order of the day."
He spoke after the House of Bishops of the Anglican Church of Kenya met in Nairobi for a two-day consultation meeting on the state of the country.
