Maasai Dancers to Perform at Summit

A Maasai traditional dance group in Narok county has said it will use the Sixth Global Entrepreneurship Summit to market Kenya’s tourism to the world.

Olalanga Foundation is one the groups that have been selected to entertain guests, including US President Barack Obama, during the summit on Saturday.

Director Gideon Kitare on Tuesday said they will use the platform to praise the relationship between Kenya and the US to strengthen it.

He said they will plead with Obama to help lift the travel advisories issued by the US and other Western nations on Kenya due to insecurity threats.

“Our Maasai culture has been used by Kenya to promote tourism abroad. That is what we will be showcasing during the conference,” Kitare said in Narok town.

He said they are delighted to entertain guests from all over the world.

“It is a great honour for us to perform before the most powerful man in the world,” Kitare said.
