I have one person in my team who is less knowledge and a chatter box. When it comes to interviewing others, he is picked to conduct the interview although he hired me and possesses less knowledge. I am confused over the fact that if someone gets hired and is less knowledgeable than expected, I have to walk them through everything (which I do). Why doesn't my manager involve me in the interview process or should I let it go as he might know I am too busy? and if so how can I make myself let it go.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Your Manager may in fact think that you're too busy to interview new prospects which is why he's having another tend to that type of work. It could be for a number of reasons. Maybe that person has done recruitment before, maybe people find him more personable, or maybe all it comes down to is time constraints. There's a billion different reasons and we here at The Workplace are not telepathic enough to tell you why.
As an example I can tell you specifically that, before I developed into a career in software dev, I had applied for an insurance position at a state-wide company. They weren't the biggest, but they seemed promising(and to be honest I was desperate for a job as I had been laid off prior to this). Even so I turned down the job after it was offered. Know why? Because the interviewer was incredibly nervous, babbled incessantly, and though he sounded like he knew what he was talking about, he ultimately turned me off from the company because if they were all like him they didn't seem like the type of people that I would like to work with.
Now that example's not to say that you're terrible at speaking to people or anything, all it's meant to do is point out that someone may be incredibly intelligent but lack the social demeanor required for recruitment and it absolutely can affect the hiring process. Simply put, it's not for everyone.
Unfortunately the reason why your Manager did not include you(again no telepathy) is not something we can really say for certain. The best thing to do in this situation is to consult with your Manager. Ask if you can participate in the hiring process or, as an alternative, perhaps write up a small document listing questions or certain requirements you would like them to include in the interview process.
