Nachrowi Ramli Known as ‘Mamat’ from Sentiong Alley
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Jakarta deputy-governor candidate Nachrowi Ramli, was amicably known as Mamat when he was a child.
“I was born in Sentiong alley in Senen,” said Nachrowi when addressing the Indonesia Tionghoa Association (INTI) at Raja Kuring Restaurant in Penjaringan, North Jakarta, on Saturday.
Nachrowi’s parents’ house is still located in the densely populated area on the border of Senen and Johar Baru district. “But if you go there don’t ask for Nachrowi. Ask for Mamat’s house,” he said, referring to his childhood nickname.
In Kramat Sentiong, Nachrowi—a Betawinese, or member of the Jakarta indigenous ethnic group—received his first lesson on diversity because the area has a cemetery for the Chinese community. In the past, every time there was a funeral, the Chinese community would smash a watermelon and the young Nachrowi would wait on the side of the street with his friends to enjoy the watermelon.
