Sandiaga’s brother to resign from OK OCE program
The Jakarta Post
Jakarta deputy governor-elect Sandiaga Uno has clarified that his brother, Indra Uno, will not be part of his flagship entrepreneurial program One District One Center of Entrepreneurship (OK OCE) after Sandiaga’s inauguration on Monday.
"We are committed to this being a movement from Anies [Baswedan] and Sandiaga. There must be neither room for nepotism nor any deal. When we start our work, there will be no more Indra [in the program]," said Sandiaga, as quoted by antaranews.com on Wednesday.
Sandiaga added that Indra was currently involved in the program, because he was establishing it in its initial process.
"There is no direct interaction, and [Indra] does not receive any funds from Jakarta's budget," he said. "For good governance, we realized that we need to choose people not connected with us," he added.
Previously, it was reported that Sandiaga had appointed Indra, a businessman and academic, to be the chairman of OK OCE, which provides entrepreneurial training to micro-, small-, and medium-enterprises in Jakarta.
Jakarta Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Agency head Irwandi said earlier that the program was listed in the revised 2017 city budget with an allocation of Rp 1.5 billion (US$111,000). (agn)
