Ratnapura, West Selayar


The House of People, Selayari legislature, building stood still in the midst of sprawling Ratnapura despite it hasn't been used for almost fifty years (22/03)

Kabare - Plans to reinstate the long-defunct Selayari legislature, the House of People, has been on the talk recently since the Council of King's Advisors announced it last November. The unicameral national legislature of Selayar, it was suspended by King Jayawarman I after the break of the devastating Selayari Civil War. For almost half a century it has been defunct, although de jure it still exists under the constitution of Selayar.


The end of Selayari Civil War in 2014 brought hopes to many of the reinstatement of the House of People, or Yima Huinarang as it was called in Selayaric. It was the only part of the national government where people were able to choose their members.  Limited democracy for the people, as King Dharmasetu said when he founded the People's Kingdom of Selayar almost eighty-years ago.


King Jayawarman II has yet to speak about the plan that was put forward by the Council, but since the King hasn't impeded the progress so far it is safe to say that he is pleased with the decision.


For the King, for the country, for the people!

Herama, East Selayar


King Jayawarman II during the visit to the developing Herama in East Selayar (23/03)


Kabare - King Jayawarman II visited Kilau for the first time since the end of Civil War in 2014 during this historic visit. Despite his old age, the King insisted that he needed to visit Kilau to show that he is indeed in favour of reconciliation with the rebels. Kilau used to be the major strongholds for the rebels for almost during the entirety of the war, and thus the de-facto capital of the treasonous Republic of Selayar. The visit is considered important in the fact that it is also the first time Selayari monarch visit the eastern Selayar after half a decade.


Kilau was devastated during the last offensive of the Kingdom to drive the rebels to its knee in 2014, with thousands of casualty and hundreds of buildings destroyed by the mighty Selayari army. It was the last strongholds of the rebels after the fall of Tubik in 2012, the biggest city in East Selayar.


The King himself has ordered the release of Reconstruction Fund to develop Kilau and other war-torn Selayari cities to be rebuilt in 2015. The people of the cities reacted cheerily when the news arrived, happy that they were finally being incorporated again to the Crown of Selayar. "For the King, for the country, for the people!", the chant that was and still frequently heard from many people across Selayar.


The visit of the King Jayawarman II to Kilau is to observe the realisation of the Fund in the city and the areas surrounding it. People cheered everywhere during the King's visit.

"People of Selayar! I'm here today to announce that we are brothers. We are one as fellow Selayari. For that, I'm grateful to be here with my brethren. I, as the King, on behalf of Selayar, promise to you that East Selayar, and the whole Selayar will prosper once again under my guidance. Long live the country!


His Majesty will stay in Kilau for a few days, touring around the city before departing to other cities in East Selayar.


For the King, for the country, for the people!

Fate of oil and gas blocks to be decided next week


Development plans for the two blocks near Liaknia

Kabare - Plans to develop the Lorhanga and Puhiara blocks have been on the talks since the two blocks are two of the most promising blocks in Selayar. Located offshore of Liaknia, the blocks have oil reservoirs amounting to 15 billion barrels according to the Ministry of Energy and Resources.


The Ministry of Energy and Resources, with the approval of the Advisors Council and Head of Cabinet, had approved the development of the blocks by the Selayari National Oil and Gas Corporation.

They stated that "it will bring new prosperity to our glorious nation and further united us in the name of socialism".


In line with the announcement, the corporation also announced that they would be open to negotiation with its allies and neighbouring countries for cooperation in developing the oil blocks.

Long thought extinct, an endemic Selayari tiger may have been spotted again

Kabare - A tiger subspecies thought to be extinct for nearly half a century has possibly been spotted again in Selayar, raising hopes that the animals still exist somewhere on their lush island.

One of the many subspecies of tiger, the Selayari tiger was once a dominant predator on the tropical island of Selayar. In the end of 19th century, they were so numerous on the island that Andallan colonisers put a bounty on the head of the animals to encourage their killing. Though Selayari locals refrained from killing the creatures unless they did harm, as human populations swelled many big cat encounters resulted in human deaths. The Selayari tiger's numbers dwindled over the next two centuries.

By the 1960s, hunters reported seeing few if any of them on the island. The remaining Selayari tigers had fled to the mountainous areas and national parks where humans couldn’t easily follow. The Selayari Civil War did nothing other than dwindling their numbers further down. The last positive confirmed sighting of the big cats occurred in Selayar’s Kuterai National Park in 1987. And in 2003, they were declared extinct by the Selayari government.

Even so, wildlife enthusiasts haven’t given up hope that the Tigers still may be out there. Spurred on by rumours and reported glimpses, people have regularly set camera traps since the 2010s in a bid to capture the reclusive tigers. But they’ve had no luck getting the shot. 

Last month, however, a wildlife ranger has photographed what may be the first definitive sighting of a Javan tiger in more than 40 years. Workers in East Selayar’s Central Lunong Natural Reserve spotted a big cat that appeared different than any of the species usually seen in the area, and when the pictures were published online, speculation swirled around whether this cat could be the one.

“This used to be Selayari tiger habitat,” Aditya Matara, the head of conservation at the reserve, told the local news media. “We hope that they’re still there.”

The Advisors Council has announced the government intends to confirm the sighting of the tiger, and has decreed that the Central Lunong Natural Reserve will be expanded and renamed into "Tigers' Sanctuary".


For the King, for the country, for the people!

Expanding Selayari wings to other nations


Hirmawan Jayanto, current President Director of Air Selayar

Kabare - Nearing its 43rd holiday, Air Selayar will be planning to expand its routes to the international stage for the first time. This ambitious plan is personally requested by the King himself, saying that 'it's time for Selayar to expand its wing to other nations'.

Air Selayar, in its almost half-a-century history, has never served international flight outside Selayar. Only recently did Selayar opened its border, mainly due to the end of the Civil War that was won victoriously by the People's Kingdom. The policy change also marked a new era for Selayar, dubbed the 'Victorious Era', where the previously isolated paradise nation will finally be opened to the whole world.

Hirmawan Jayanto, President Director of Air Selayar, said that the company will realise this plan by 2020. He is confident of the company's ability as it is run by his fellow Selayari workers.

The King's Council has pledged 20 million nanaka to realise this ambitious plan.

Hirmawan also said that the neighbouring country, Mauridiviah, Little Flau, and especially Andalla will be the most likely destination for the international expansion of Air Selayar.


For the King, for the country, for the people!
