The persons appointed do not necessarily have to have degrees. There are people with professional qualifications who are very competent. CPA or ACCA should suffice

There is no way they can talk of degree holders I believe CPA finalist can even do this work better than some degree holders. This does not mean that having a degree is bad.

I also would want to emphasize about gender and age. It's good
for the committee to have a good balance of both genders and also ensure atleast two of the members are below 40 years

It seems that the Tax Agents Committee is a registration and disciplinary body. So who is the regulator of the tax agents? Surely not the KRA Commissioner who is an interested party...

This section is in conflict with Section 3 of these regulations. The Tax agents committee shall receive, consider applications for tax agents and investigate any allegations of misconducts made against tax agents.
