Jayapura, Jubi – Papuan women traders urged the Jayapura city government to provide assistance for them in the form of capital.

“For those who sell outside, find no problems because they can sell directly. Yet for the traders who sell inside of the building cannot sell as usual because the building is now under renovation,” said coordinator of who are also members of Papuan Traders Solidarity (SOLPAP), Rev. Dora, at the office of mayor of Jayapura on last week.

She said Papuan traders also complained about the arrangement of the market as well as the Togel gambling that often occur in the location.

In a meeting in the mayor’s office on Thursday afternoon, Mayor of Jayapura, Benhur Tommy Mano said it only regulated and organized, and supervised the market and the market is only used as a meeting place for sellers and buyers.
“I hope everyone to keep the area clean. And because it is temporary, I do not collect fees markets, they are free to sell as well as Paldam market,” Mano said.

He also requested to stop the gambling practice at the market. “I’m not authorized, the Jayapura City Government could not help because we only arrange it, while to build is from the province,” he said. (Sindung Sukoco/Tina)
