Indonesia traffic jam forces President out of car, treks to state event

Indonesia traffic jamIndonesian president, Joko Widodo, was on his way to an important state event, when he got stuck in traffic. This forced him, and his security detail to get out of his car and walk 2 kilometers to get to his destination.

Indonesia’s notorious traffic congestion was on display for the world Thursday after the country’s president was forced to walk two kilometres through the scorching heat to attend a military parade.

Widodo and senior government officials were held up by gridlock as they approached the military parade in Cilegon, a port city about two and a half hours drive from the capital Jakarta, the presidential palace said.
After a 30-minute wait, “the president then decided from inside the car that he would walk,” Widodo’s guard Ili Dasili said in a statement.-DailyMail
