IMG-20170426-WA0009-1024x576Jakarta. Hundreds of colorful flower boards for outgoing Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama and Deputy Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat filled Jakarta’s City Hall on Tuesday morning (25/04), sent by the city’s residents to say thanks and farewell to their beloved leaders.

Many of the flower boards were accompanied with melancholic, Hallmark card-like messages for the governor, which quickly did the round on social media.
