Refuse Relocation, Proof How Weak Provincial Government

Reported: Ikhsan Madjido

SOCIO-Culturally, a community is rather difficult indeed to leave its domicile which has been occupied for years. Therefore the community must be given an understanding that their place is already unfit for settlement because it includes on the red zone.

Residents of the earthquake and liquefaction of Kelurahan Petobo, South Palu District, Palu City, refused to be relocated to other villages based to the Decree of the Central Sulawesi Governor.

Public policy observer Slamet Riyadi Cante said that this rejection showed a lack of public involvement in policy formulation. In the context of formulating public policy, the community really needs to be involved.

"Regarding community proposals for relocation sites not far from the original place, it should be accommodated as long as they are not in the red zone region," said Slamet Riyadi, Sunday (1/6/2019).

The Tadulako University academician hopes that the Provincial Government needs to be more intense in conducting socialization to the citizens so that they can understand the Government's policies for relocation.

"Massive socialization of the red zone area is important because there are still many people who do not understand," he asked seriously.

The Governor of Central Sulawesi, Longki Djanggola, has signed a decision on the location of relocation number 369/516 / DIS.BMPR-G.ST / 2018 on December 28, 2018, in Palu. The dictum I in the decree reads the location of the relocation recovery land due to the disaster in Central Sulawesi Province to provide permanent housing, green open spaces, public facilities, and infrastructure as well as offices.

Then, the dictum II in the decree reads, the location of land as referred to in dictum one as follows in Palu City covering an area of 560.93 hectares covering Tatanga District with an area of 79.3 hectares in Kelurahan Duyu, Mantikulore District with an area of 481.63 hectares in Kelurahan Tondo and Talise Village. Furthermore, in Sigi Regency covering an area of 362 hectares located in Sigi Biromaru Subdistrict covering Pombewe Village covering an area of 201.12 hectares and Oloboju Village 160.88 hectares.

As reported by Petobo Urban Village Head Alfin H Ladjuni said his citizens wanted to stay in Petobo.

Alfin said, if the citizens were relocated to another village that was considered safe by the government, then indirectly the name of the kelurahan had to be replaced. Even the location of the Petobo Sub-District which is not affected by liquefaction can no longer be directly utilized by its citizens.

In fact, he said, most of the residents were farmers who used their lands in the Petobo Village to grow crops. "Most of the residents of Petobo are farmers and they are still working on the land to farm their families on land that is not affected by liquefaction," he said.

He stressed that in the near future the victims of liquefaction at the Petobo Urban Village will meet the Governor of Central Sulawesi, Longki Djanggola, to discuss the relocation area/location.

Related to this, the Chairperson of RT 1 / RW 5, Petobo Abd Naim, questioned the reason for the Central Sulawesi Provincial Government not to determine the eastern part of the Petobo Village (the east direction of the liquefaction site) as a relocation location/place for disaster victims.

About 1,642 households or 3,800 victims affected by the earthquake and liquefaction of Petobo Village are currently at the evacuation site on the Japanese road or east of the liquefaction area.**
