He said they are aware that the Maasai collect nearly all revenue from Maasai Mara, and were about to benefit from an industrial zone in Naivasha. He said, "It is time you bargain for lasting peace in Baringo and bargain for share of geothermal power in Silale and push for resources to promote mass tourism to Lake Baringo, Bogoria and Kerio Valley." He asked the leaders to support pineapple production in Bureti/Kericho and help small scale tea farmers in Kericho, Nandi, Bomet and Kuresoi/Nakuru to improve on the quantity and quality of their produce. "Help the Pokots to get royalties on their limestone and possibly oil and open up Tiaty as the new tourism destination. Help the community understand the importance of conserving Mau Forest and assist the Marakwets to be the leading producer of fruits in Kenya," he said.
