Tribalism is dominating the Kenyan workplace, a recent report stated.

The report by Anthony Ngare, a journalist with the country's East African Standard, argued that discrimination along tribal lines, while in a disguised form, is rampant in the workplace.

In some companies, up to 80 per cent of the workforce comes from the same tribal area, said Ngare.
