Why question my nationalism as Papua Governor? Lukas Enembe speaks intimidation

Governor of Papua, Lukas Enembe when receiving the Amnesty International Indonesia team in Jakarta, Friday (27/5/2022) - Jubi/Rabin

Jakarta, Jubi TV– Papua Governor Lukas Enembe finally opened up about his experience of receiving intimidation through the distribution of hoaxes on social media by certain groups, such as questioning his loyalty to Indonesia.

Enembe wondered why he was often stalked by certain people when conducting both state duties and personal agendas (as an ordinary person apart from his position as governor), then his activities were framed as massive hoaxes.

“Why is this not experienced by 33 other governors in Indonesia?” said Enembe at the Papua Province Liaison Office in Jakarta on Friday, May 27, 2022.

He also wondered why the state still had to question his attitude and nationalism as the Governor of Papua. He has been working as a civil servant for 20 years and to date, he remained an Indonesian citizen who upholds the spirit of Bhineka Tunggal Ika (Unity in Diversity). “Why should we question my nationalism as Papua Governor?” Enembe said.

According to Enembe, building Papua must be done with the heart. “I also need to convey that the Papuan provincial government has been running well with excellent communication and coordination, including with the central government and all parties,” he concluded. (*)
