I’d (Have) Vote(d) For Him

Looks like he was (and was the first) President of Indonesia from 1945-1967. Man, I bet those Russian babes were krasivaya!


Marriages and Divorces

While in Surabaya for high school, Sukarno lived with the Indonesian nationalist leader Tjokroaminoto. He fell in love with his landlord’s daughter Siti Oetari, who he married in 1920.

The following year, however, Sukarno went to study civil engineering at the Technical Institute in Bandung and fell in love again. This time, his partner was the boarding-house owner’s wife Inggit, who was 13 years older than Sukarno. They each divorced their spouses and married each other in 1923.

Inggit and Sukarno remained married for 20 years but never had children. Sukarno divorced her in 1943 and married a teenager named Fatmawati. She would bear Sukarno five children, including Indonesia’s first female president, Megawati Sukarnoputri.

In 1953, President Sukarno decided to become polygamous in accordance with Muslim law. When he married a Javanese woman named Hartini in 1954, First Lady Fatmawati was so angry that she moved out of the presidential palace. Over the next 16 years, Sukarno would take five additional wives: a Japanese teen named Naoko Nemoto (Indonesian name Ratna Dewi Sukarno), Kartini Manoppo, Yurike Sanger, Heldy Djafar, and Amelia do la Rama.


One thought on “I’d (Have) Vote(d) For Him

  1. I had a boss back in the 90s that was a big galoot of a guy. Had a way with words.

    When we were discussing the Jennifer Flowers/Bill Clinton thing (back then) he said; “You know what I wanna see? I wanna see one of these guys say ‘Yeah I did it. You see her? You see my wife? You’d have done it too'”.

    You get busted, hold your head up. Why not?
