Matius Alfons, Jakarta – Loosing presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto visited the Cendana residence – the private home of the Suharto family – where he was greeted by Suharto’s daughter Siti Hardijanti Rukmana (Tutut Suharto).
Wearing a cream coloured short-sleeved shirt, Prabowo arrived at Jl. Cendana in Central Jakarta at around 10.20 am on Wednesday June 5.
Minal aidin wal fa izin [may you be counted among the returnees and victors] said Prabowo giving the traditional Eid greeting when he met Rukmana.
Prabowo then went directly into the house, inside which his former wife Siti Hediati Hariyadi (Titiek Soeharto) and former Golkar Party leader Akbar Tandjung could also be seen. Tandjung had indeed arrived earlier along with his wife.
Prior to visiting the Cendana, Prabowo conducted Eid prayers at his private residence in Hambalang. He was accompanied by his son Didit, Greater Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra) deputy chairperson Fadli Zon, Gerindra deputy chairperson Edhy Prabowo and their adjutants. (haf/hri)
