A chief is the head of a Location. He or she is in charge of the security matters and the affairs of the people in a given division. Previously many people looked down upon the post. This was because the office holders were just picked from elders in the village and literally had no much qualifications. This factor contributed to their low income, but with time things have changed.
For one to be a chief in kenya currently, he or she should have a diploma certificate in public administration, education, governance or conflict management from a recognised institution. Not forgeting that the person should have gotten a C-plain in KCSE. The person is also required to be of 35 years of age and above.
Currently chiefs have been recognised by the government and just like any other civil servant, they too earn good money including allowances. Currently chiefs in Kenya are placed under job group 'H'. The chiefs currently take home upto a total of Ksh 32,760 per month.
