Tribal Leaders in Papua Strongly Reject the Existence of KST
By: Viktor Awoitauw )*
The leaders or tribal chiefs who are in the land of Papua continue to vehemently reject the existence of KST on Cenderawasih Earth. How could it not be, the article is that the separatist gang has been continuing to spread various kinds of violence and threats to civil society so that it is very dangerous.
One of the leaders or tribal chiefs in the Sota District, Yeremian firmly rejected the existence of the Separatist and Terrorist Group (KST) in Bumi Cenderawasih, showing how firm the tribal leader was in fighting and rejecting the existence of the separatist group, he even asked that they should not be in their customary territory at all.
It was not half-hearted, that Jeremiah’s loud call he even conveyed specifically to the leader of the terrorist and separatist group, namely Egianus Kogoya, whose group of leaders has always made noise, especially in Nduga Regency, Papua Mountains Province.
In a video that went viral and was widely shared on social media, the tribal leader spoke very firmly and loudly in front of his residents and stated that he strongly rejected the existence of separatist groups in Indonesia.
Apart from vehemently rejecting the existence of KST Papua, Yeremia also invited the separatist and terrorist groups to quickly regain their senses and return to the Republic of Indonesia, because in fact if they could rejoin the country, they would be able to jointly fully support and assisting the government in developing and advancing the Cenderawasih Earth.
Thus, the common aspirations shared by all indigenous Papuans (OAP), namely being able to enjoy the advancement of their region, will soon be achieved much more quickly and optimally without any obstacles, and equitable distribution of development in Indonesia will soon be realized in reality.
So far, the Government of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) itself, since the era of the leadership of the President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has continued to make maximum efforts to be able to create equitable development in the country by reducing the gaps between regions, so that a new paradigm in development has been encouraged, namely is no longer Java-centric, but has become Indonesia-centric.
Not only Egianus Kogoya, but there was also another Papuan KST leader named Yotam Bugiangge, who himself was known as a traitor to the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI).
How could it not be, the article is known that previously Yotam Bugiangge himself was a soldier of the Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI) who was actually being assigned to continue to guard peace and keep conditions in the Land of Papua conducive. However, in carrying out his duties, he later defected and even joined a separatist group in the easternmost province of the country.
It turned out that upon further investigation, Yotam himself was one of Egianus Kogoya’s childhood friends. It could be because of the friendship factor from childhood with the leadership of the KST, that he actually preferred to leave the TNI security forces and instead betrayed his own nation and instead joined KST to carry out attacks on the security forces of the joint TNI personnel, the Indonesian National Police (Polri ), the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) even attacked other civilians.
Furthermore, very high appreciation is deserved for all levels of the security apparatus in Indonesia, where they have been fighting and trying hard tirelessly to continue to assist all people in Papua in restoring security.
There has been a lot of assistance, especially in terms of increasing security and creating a conducive environment, which has been carried out by the security forces so far. They also continue to work to increase protection for the whole community, especially from all the cruel and heinous acts committed by KST Papua and also the security forces continue to help the community so they can get a much better life.
One concrete form of the tireless work carried out by all levels of the security apparatus to restore peace to Cenderawasih Earth is the latest news that the security forces from the joint personnel have succeeded in arresting Yusak Pakage, who is a KST Papua sympathizer who does have very hard look.
The arrest began when Yusak Pakage was found to be making a fuss again at the Skouw PLBN Immigration Post because he refused to follow procedures to be able to enter Papua New Guinea. From there, the security forces immediately stopped him and secured him.
Because they continue to spread terror and also threaten with a series of acts of violence and cruelty that are completely inhumane and seriously threaten the safety and peace of all people on Cenderawasih Earth, the tribal leaders in Papua firmly and vehemently reject the existence of KST on their land.
