Former Jakarta Governor BTP Take Mother and Grandparents on a Self-Drive Tour of Bali

Basuki Tjahaja Purnama - the former Governor of Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta who is also known as “Ahok” – recently visited Bali with his family following his release after serving a two-year prison sentence for a highly controversial blasphemy conviction.

Traveling to Bali in the company of his mother, grandfather and grandmother, the former governor uploaded messaged and photos to his Instagram account (@basukibtp) sharing his family fun.

As reported by NusaBali, one message uploaded to Instagram on Thursday, February 7, 2019 read: “Inviting my mom, grandma and brother on a VW Safari in Bali.”

Ahok also filed several posting about his 73-year-old mother, Buniartu Ningsih, including a number of photos - one showing the woman bravely trying a high-altitude swing while laughing and enjoying a panoramic view.

Posting to Instagram his love and pride for his mother was much in evidence as Ahok said: “My momma was 73 years old in April of this year and she has the spirit and bravery equal to any 17-year-old.”
