JAKARTA: The owner of an abandoned luxury house in Cakung, East Jakarta who was rescued recently is reported to often refuse help from local residents or the government because he feels he can still support himself and his children.
The head of Kampung Jatinegara, Slamet Sihabudin suspects that Eny Sulkaesih, 58, is willing to choose to live without electricity and water supply for many years because he is ashamed of his wealthy status once upon a time.
“Yes, it’s true, he refused help and was willing to live without electricity because he was originally a rich man. So he doesn’t want to be helped,” said Slamet at PLN Complex, Jatinegara yesterday.
Slamet claimed that local residents often offered help to Eny, but were flatly rejected.
Residents still try to help by giving work to Eny’s only child, Pulung Mustika Abima or called Tiko, 23, as a complex security guard.
“Tiko is a son who obeys his mother. He has to ask his mother’s permission about anything. He lives in Eny’s house, if he is given social assistance he doesn’t want it,” he said.
The story of the two children went viral recently after residents came to help clean their house and took sick Eny to the hospital.
The two children live in poverty in a luxury house that has been abandoned for more than 12 years without electricity and water.
Tiko had to drop out of school and take on the responsibility of taking care of her mother after the woman suffered from depression due to her husband’s death which worsened when the family went bankrupt.-AGENCIES
