The plan, backed by the New York Zoological Society (NYZS), won ministry approval and was put to the Kajiado County Council. The council tentatively agreed but quickly backed away after the plan was rejected at an elders’ meeting in 1968. Both Sindiyo and the area MP, Stanley Oloitiptip, were present. Oloitiptip, then assistant minister of health, insisted on a local solution 26 CHAPTER 2 rather than one imposed from outside. Although he was caught between government and local interests, Oloitiptip sided squarely with the Maasai.

The elders deeply resented the proposal and wrote a strong letter articulating their views (Lwezaula 1970). Much as they favored positive returns from Amboseli, they had received no remuneration, despite their accommodation of wildlife. The elders’ rejection of the plan led to renewed pressure on the government to take over Amboseli. Conservationists argued forcefully for decisive action to avoid the destruction of Amboseli through overgrazing. The result was a race between the government’s little-disguised takeover efforts and Oloitiptip’s search for a local solution.

The point could not have been made more clearly: The government could annex Amboseli, but its fate lay squarely with the Maasai. 2. At this stage, I became an unofficial arbitrator between the Maasai and the government. My immediate aim was to salvage as much of the locally based plan as I could within the constraints imposed by the presidential decree. In Amboseli I met regularly with an informal network of Maasai, including Ole Purdul and Ole Musa, in an attempt to defuse the crisis and promote local involvement.
