Victims of Famine in Yahukimo Hundreds Achieve
NGO reports only 92 people, 222 people Pemkab Data Collection

SUHOMAI - Government Yahukimo, Papua, not simply believe in the data submitted by NGOs of people died of starvation. To ensure this, dropping the team to the district government districts in the area of Yahukimo.

The result, the number of people died of starvation reported more pemkab. If NGOs only 92 people called the number, the data obtained by the team reach the hundreds of people.

Yahukimo Regent Ones Pahabol led his own team during a survey in the District Bomela and Suntamon. When the visit, Ones to hear complaints directly related famine. Report''citizens, famine occurred because of crop failure,''said Ones told reporters.

Tubers are planted in the field they look lush with dense leaves. But when harvested, the fruit is empty. If there is, small fruit and eat worms again.

From citizens, Ones also get the data that in the two districts alone recorded 222 people died of starvation. In Bomela, residents who died reached 160 people.

The findings were derived from data from January until August 2009. From Suntamon District, reported 62 people died of starvation.

There are funny dialogue that occurs between the regents and local residents. When the magistrate asked, if someone died because of starvation? Residents said no. ''Just because a lack of food, continued abdominal pain, diarrhea, diarrhea, and then died,''said chief presidential primary Sundamon Nabiel Judas.

While in Bolema, expressed amazement Ones. Because when it visited the district last month, he was not getting reports of people who died of starvation. Kok''Now there are reports like that. Where did this?''He said.

He promised to examine the truth of the news. Because, so far there are no reports residents died after a few days without eating. There, they lack food, continued diarrhea and died. Medically''have us examine whether because of lack of food and diarrhea or other diseases that cause diarrhea,''he said.

To be sure, according to the Ones, it takes several days. There are several criteria about the famine. For example, people eat but was not satisfied that a sign that the lack of food. (don / FUD / JPNN / bad)
