Kuresoi South MP Zakayo Cheruiyot has accused the Jubilee administration of perpetuating tribalism in public service and development.

Speaking after a church function, Mr Cheruiyot said President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto had perfected the art of tribal appointments, where two tribes are taking the lion's share of  Government jobs.

The MP said development and employment in the country were skewed and not a reflection of the real face of Kenya.

"The country is split along tribal lines and if it's a crime for some of us to point out such underlying issues for the sake of the country, so be it. It's also that high time the church must remain firm and speak the truth," said the MP.

The MP said tribal appointments being made by the President had divided the country more than ever before.
