The process of determining which candidates were best suited for the two positions was a rigorous one especially following the controversy that surrounded the appointment of one of the Commissioners, Leila Abdi for the past few weeks.

During her vetting, the education parliamentary select committee discovered glaring gaps in her curriculum vitae-KCPE and KCSE documents that were enough to raise eyebrows.

She did not have her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education, KCPE, and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE Certificates.

Besides Leila was born in Mogadishu, Somalia but she was raised in Kajiado County.
