President’s Special Staff Would Not Ask for Cash to Regions : Governor

Published

on

Jayapura, Jubi – A day before Jokowi’s visit to Papua, many people allegedly would take benefit such as asking for cash and so on.

Papua Governor Lukas Enembe told in Jayapura on Monday (28/12/2015) that the president’s visit might be used by some culprits to request money from the government offices through proposals.

“So, now I declare there are no special staff or expert staff or whatsoever to come and say they are preparing things and asking for this or that. If so, it’s a personal not representing the institution,” said Enembe.

Therefore, he appealed the Papuan people to be aware on such scamming modus, because if it happened, it would certainly create new situation in Papua, which is not conducive.

“People should know about this, if there are those who come asking for this and that, it’s not right. Furthermore, I have received report from several office heads about certain proposals. It’s just not right. The president’s special staff would not act like that; go to the regencies and regional government

offices for collecting money by giving the reason of the president’s visit. It’s not true,” he said.

According to the governor, the purpose of Jokowi’s visit to Merauke is to launch the time capsule. He would take Hercules to Wamena to launch the Wamena Airport and government office. He would hold a public meeting at Lapangan Pendidikan. Then, at 14:00 Papua time, he will continue to travel to Sorong and Raja Ampat, West Papua Province.

“Perhaps, the president wants to spend the New Year eve in Raja Ampat. This is a tentative schedule, we don’t know any changes yet,” said Enembe.

When asked about security matter, Enembe said the military would handle it during the visit to Merauke, Wamena, Sorong and also Raja Ampat. “About the rumor that I won’t come to welcome the president, it’s not true. I would definitely welcome him because he is our president. So, both provincial and regional government officials would welcome him,” he said. (Alexander Loen/rom)

Jayapura, Jubi – Central West Papua National Committee (KNPB) held a limited discussion to support FKLNS (Organization of the Liberation Struggle of the Kanaky Tribe in New Caledonia) which has been well received by the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) to conduct a referendum in November 2018.

The First Chairman of Central KNPB Agus Kosay said it’s time for Kanaky to get self-determination from French colonialism.

“Kanaky must declare their self-determination. If Kanaky gets their independence, it would be able to give their support to West Papua because we share the same situation, which lives under the colonialism,” he said on Wednesday (08/12/2018) in Jayapura.

Meanwhile a member of Gempar (Papuan Youth and Student Movement) Nelius Wenda said as a nation oppressed by Indonesia, West Papua fully supports the referendum agenda of New Caledonia.

“Kanaky must determine their destiny. It must be far better than being under the French colonialism. In the future we Papuans are just like Kanaky,” he said. (*)
