Matiangi has been on the receiving end of insults from a section of politicians in the region.
Last week, a group of youth demonstrated in Kisii demanding for Deputy President William Ruto and his allies to respect the CS. This was a day after the DP had visited Nyamira for two harambees. The Tanga Tanga group accused Matiangi of blocking the fundraiser a week earlier.
