looks like policy download is not happening properly for any of the plugin , can you please check corresponding logs for kafka , and there are you getting any error related to policy download fail,

and how did you enable the kafka plugin ?

please restart after enabling it , and one more thing kafka ranger is supported only on secure cluster.
