Wamena Jubi – civil servants in Yahukimo complained that they had not received rice rations for nine months.
One civil servant in Dekai, Amalek Mnsen, said the last time government employees received rice rations was in June 2014.
“Civil servants in Yahukimo have not received rations of rice since July 2014 as PD Irian Bakti Wamena has not delivered them to Dekai. We should have got our rice,” Mnsen said last week.
“We work in Dekai , Yahukimo yet we are told to take the rice in Wamena ,” Mnsen added
Usually PD Irian Bakti in Wamena after receiving from State Logistic Agency Bulog delivered and distribute to any place of duty, including for employees in Dekai as intended, but that during the time they only served in Wamena.
