Merauke, 6/6 (Jubi) – One of the nine villages in Tabonji district, Kampung Wanggambi, is known as a place that is very difficult to reach.
The only public transportation used by the population of 50 families is traditional row boat with a purpose to a neighboring village and district. District Chief of Tabonji, Wilhelmus Harbelubun, said people from Kampung Wanggambi have to row a boat for a week to go to town.
“It’s been three years I have served the district, but I still have not time to go up to the Wamnggambi since there is no speed boat. A speed boat just arrived and I will visit people in the near future,” he told tabloidjubi.com on Friday (6/6).
Wanggambi’s people rarely come to the capital district. If they come, it is just for a messenger with the aim of taking fees and others. The conditions of the region has been directly reported to the regent of Merauke, Romanus Mbaraka.
“I have to visit the village and hold dialogue with the people ,” he said. (Jubi / Frans L Kobun/ Tina)
