Bogor: President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo visits an area prone to landslides in an isolated area in Harkat Jaya, Sukajaya, Bogor. Access to the village is still blocked by landslides since January 1, 2020.
According toMedcom.id's observations on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Jokowi and his entourage of ministers were washed down by heavy rain while watching heavy equipment work at the affected area. Because the rain was getting heavier, residents gave a jacket to Jokowi.
