"Matiang'i has been roaming around threatening head teachers and this has instilled fear among our school heads. He should carry out his duties in a more formal way instead of ambushing school heads with impromptu visits," said Kuria.
"He should let the County officers do their work unless he wants to render them jobless," he added.
Matiang'i has been making impromptu visits to schools saying that as the education CS, he is free to work from Jogoo house or schools.
