Blame game

Blame game

Men: The Kartanegara bridge tragedy isn’t my responsibility...

Rat: Who’s responsible? Me! That’s the way it is with projects!

An all too familiar blame game has erupted following the sudden collapse of the Kutai Kartanegara suspension bridge on Saturday, killing more than 20. While there’s no official explain yet as to why the structure build only 10 years ago gave way, anti-graft activists say it’s just another example of how quality materials are substituted with low-grade ones, a practice common in all of Indonesia’s infrastructure projects.
