Merauke, Jubi (21/1) – The Education Office of Merauke District was not given the authorities to mutate the teachers whereas it is actually the most competent institution to do it.  In fact, there are other Officers from certain offices have the authorities to perform mutations without any acknowledgement from the relevant office.

Sometimes we were surprised when knowing that the teacher had moved to another place. When being asked, the person answered without feeling guilty that he or she got the disposition of transfer from the other office. In fact it was not the authority of other office to manage and regulate the teachers’ mutation,” the Head of Junior High School Department of Education Office of Merauke District, Liem Gebze, said on Tuesday (21/1).
As the Official in the Education Office, Gebze said, that his office realized if there are still many limitations, especially the learning and teaching activities in the villages are not running because most of teachers were in the city to continue their study.
He said that one of the solutions that are being thought by the Education Office is to collaborate with the Teacher Education Collage For Papua (Kolase Pendidikan Guru/KPG Khas Papua) where the fresh college graduates can be hired and located in the villages to do their task and responsibility in daily teaching.
“I also asked the input and feedback from the parliament in order to solve the problem of education. If we are not able to overcome the question of shortage of teachers in the villages, I am ready to put my title as the Head of Department in the Education Office,” he said.

The District Government Secretary of Merauke, Daniel Pauta, said the local government is considering and planning to hire KPG’s graduates to be placed in the villages. “Yes, this year, the planning will be implemented. So the learning activities in the villages will be going back to normal,” he said. (Jubi/Ans)

Nabire, Jubi – This is a story of Muhammad Zaki, 32 years old, a primary teacher from Aceh who decided to teach children in remote Intan Jaya, Papua.

Zaki died of illness on Monday early morning, 29 June 2020, in Nabire Public Hospital and buried on the same day at Girimulyo Cemetery, Nabire.

“He was a good person and always concerned towards Papuan children in Nabire and Intan Jaya. He always provided reading books and passed them to our community to help children in learning,” told Tri Wahyu Budi Saputra, the chief of Nabire Reading Community (Koname) who admits his loss of a close friend.

He regretted coming late and could only come at the funeral. “I heard he was ill, and then news that he passed away. I am sad because I lost a close friend who cares about Papuan children,” he said.

In the meantime, a lecturer who studied in the same university with Zaki in Aceh wrote that Zaki once distributed leaflets looking for book donors to donate for children in remote Papua by utilising free book shipping service from the Indonesian Post Office to all over Indonesia.

He was also keen to share his experiences teaching in a remote area with other students while he returned to Aceh.

The man, who was born in Krueng Mane, Aceh Utara Regency, graduated from the Indonesian Language Study Program of the Education and Pedagogy School of Almuslim Peusangan University, Bireun. He then participated in the selection of the Underdeveloped Regions Teaching Program (GPDT) conducted by the Papua task force of the Gadjah Mada University in December 2015. He passed the test and was assigned a two-year contract (2016-2018) to serve in Intan Jaya Regency, Papua Province.

Zaki was a very resilient young teacher who was always willing to work in remote areas despite the lack of facilities for education. Therefore, instead of returning to his hometown in Aceh after the termination of his contract, he decided to stay in Mbiandoga, Intan Jaya Regency as a contract teacher in the Mbiandoga Primary School.

Salamon Edison Pally, a teacher from Alor, Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT), who is currently a contract teacher in Mbiulagi One Roof Secondary College in Jae Village, Wandai Sub-district, Intan Jaya Regency, told that he and other selected teachers under the GPDT Program came to Intan Jaya in December 2015. Although they were under the same program, he was not so close to Zaki and barely met him because they were teaching in a different school. “We know each other. Although we were not close but always greeted each other if we met,” he said.

When their contracts terminated in 2018, both Zaki and Pally decided to continue working as contract teachers in Intan Jaya Regency.

In February 2020, Pally came to Nabire for personal purpose and could not return to his village following restrictions on social activities and transportation due to the COVID-19.

“When I was in Nabire, I heard Zaki was ill. I came to visit him, but he still looked fine,” said Pally.

But his condition gradually dropped in March to April. Feeling sympathy to Zaki who stayed in his relative’s house while the owner was in Aceh, Pally often visited him and advised him to stop smoking. On 26 April 2020, he took Zaki to a clinic in Nabire. While Zaki got medical treatment for six days in this clinic, Pally took care of everything. For the medical expenses, he and some former GPDT fellows collected their money to Rp 7 million.

“I was not close to him, but I sympathised with him because he was all alone. His relatives were returning to Aceh,” said Pally.

When Zaki was allowed to return home, Pally often came to accompany and encourage him to recover soon. “I could not bear to leave him alone with poor condition. So, I always accompanied him,” he said.

At that time, Pally told that Zaki had tears because he did not expect that Pally who was not close to him for almost five years in Papua took care of him.

When his friend’s condition turned worse, Pally took him to the community health centre several times, and then to the Emergency Room of the Nabire Public Hospital on Monday, 22 June 2020. Zaki stayed there for a week and passed away on 29 June 2020.

His friends came to take care of his body with the assistance of nurses and the Division Head of Pedagogy and Educational Staff Development of Intan Jaya Regency Oktovianus Talatuni.

“From the hospital, we deliver the body to Girumulyo Cemetery,” said Pally.

Furthermore, he said Zaki was lucky because he got a foster father and friends in Papua, because he lived alone, far from his family.

Zaki survived a mother in his village, while his close friend in Aceh Syahrul told Jubi by phone that his mother wanted to come to Nabire once she heard the news that her son was in coma in the hospital. However, when she was ahead of Banda Aceh, she received the news that her son already passed away in Nabire.

“His mother will still come to Nabire to visit her son’s grave,” said Syahrul. (*)

Papuan footballers and high education

Jayapura, Jubi – Ferinando Pahabol, a Papuan footballer who currently plays for Persipura, admitted that he decided to become a footballer because of his talent and hobby. But, his parents wanted him to be more concerned about his education than playing football.

Football is a popular game for children in Papua. They play football on the street, and create a local freestyle football known as ‘patah kaleng’. In this local freestyle, the goal gates are made from cans (kaleng) and no goalkeeper. Instead, all players are strikers and defenders at the same time.

Papuan children often have a dream of becoming a footballer, but their parents would never let them go further.

“Do you think you can count on football when you grow up?” said the parents who thought there is no future in football.

Yanto Rudolf Basna, a Papuan footballer from Sorong Selatan, thought he must finish his study at Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta. Therefore, he posted his gratitude on Facebook when he finally graduated after being studying for about six years, even though he is currently a centre-back defender of Sukhotai FC who competes in Thailand League. Basna previously played for Khon Kaen of Thai League 2 in 2018 but was not capable of upgrading the club to Thai League 1.

According to transfermarkt, Basna signed a contract of £125 thousand or Rp 2,212 milliard, while the most expensive Papuan footballer Boaz Sollosa get paid  £275 thousand or Rp 4,42 milliard. Another footballer Osvaldo Haay got a contract of £300 thousand or Rp 5,795 million, and Ferinando Pahabol signed an agreement of £125 thousand or Rp 2,196 milliard.

However, although he has a high-value contract, Basna still needs to finish his study at Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta. He admitted to doing his exams online and has to complete his education for almost six years. He said he must fulfil his parents’ wish for him to finish his higher education at university.

“Thank God that after six years, I passed my thesis exam. Although it was online, it would not reduce my happiness,” he said on his Facebook.

Moreover, Basna, who was a former national team captain, said education is one of his burdens during his career as a professional footballer. But he finally can get through it. “It’s one of my personal goals that comes through,” said Basna.

“I remember that ten years ago before I went to Uruguay, my father, my mother, and my young siblings were sitting in the living room. Then my father asked me, “do you want to go to school or play football?” he wrote.

Without a second thought, Basna decided to play football because at that time he had an opportunity to train in Uruguay. His fellow team in SSB Numbay Star, Terens Puhiri, followed his step a year later. According to former SSB Numbay Star the late Amos Makanway, his two players Terens Puhiri and Yanto Basna had stood out since they were at Numbay Star soccer school.

“Then my father said it’s fine if it was your decision, and I got support from my family. However, my father gave me one condition, that I should give 60 per cent of my efforts to football and 40 per cent for school, and I cannot leave one of them,” said Basna.

His father’s advice becomes his reminder to keep his focus on one thing, that is his football talent. However, he is also aware that he cannot undermine another important thing, namely higher education.

Other footballers also have parents who want them to keep playing football but finish school at the same time. Take an example of three Persipura players, Gerald Rudolf Pangkali, Ferinando Pahabol, and Ronny Esar Beroperay. They all graduated from Cenderawasih University. Earlier, other footballers Ian Kabes, Stevie Bonsapia, Boaz T Solossa and Ortizan Solossa also finished their study from Cenderawasih University. (*)

Infographic COVID-19 update in Papua until 9 June 2020 – COVID-19 Task Force Papua

Jayapura, Jubi – COVID-19 Task Force Papua confirms thirty new cases on Tuesday (9/6/2020).

It includes 12 cases in Jayapura city, 9 in Jayapura Regency, 6 in Keerom, 2 in Sarmi and 1 in Nabire. It makes up the total cases of COVID-19 in Papua to 1,110 cases.

This increase raises the issue of the availability of hospitals to take care of the patients. Spokesperson of COVID-19 Tasks Force Papua dr. Silwanus Soemoele, SpOG (K) said he is still waiting for confirmation from Abepura Mental Hospital (RSJ) to be used as a referral hospital as it planned.

“All hospitals in Jayapura City are full capacity today,” he said.

While the hospitals should be careful to send patients home because doctors only can declare patients recover from the virus and allow them to home after taking two consecutive swab tests with a negative result. Moreover, the recovered patients need to do self-quarantine for 14 days at home.

Meanwhile, two patients of COVID-19 in pregnancy are taking medical treatment in Abepura Public Hospital. “Their current condition is stable,” said Soemoele.

These two patients are detainees from Abepura Police detention. One complaint having a digestion problem, another has a bleeding condition.

“But I already took care of them in Abepura Hospital, and now they are in good condition,” he said.

Today the task force team brought their attention to Sarmi Regency with two new cases after 49 days successfully hold the transmission.

“But with these two new cases, we hope that we can continue our 49 days of smart work to find and take care of patients,” he said. (*)
