What kind of life did the chiefs appointed by the colonial government lead?


SOLUTION
The colonial government appointed chiefs of different sub-groups of Maasai who were made responsible for the affairs of the tribe.
These chiefs often accumulated wealth overtime. They had a regular income with which they could buy animals, goods and land. They lent money to poor neighbours who needed cash to pay taxes. Many of the chiefs began living in towns and started trade. They managed to survive the devastations of war and drought. They had both pastoral and non-pastoral income and could buy animals when their stock was depleted.
