President taps wife’s cat for top Palace job

Posted: June 30, 2011 in Corruption

Budi, a very special cat

In an unprecedented move today, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono announced that his wife’s cat, Budi, will next week be appointed Royal Mouse Catcher to the Palace at Surakarta in a ancient ceremony that will be attended by himself and the first lady,  the newly appointed head of the Army, Lt. General Pramono Edhie Wibowo and some leading lights from the Democratic Party who are not currently in jail.

The Palace dismissed speculation that the appointment was in any way related to Budi’s relationship to the First Lady, stressing that it was entirely on merit, evidenced by Budi’s winning performance in the Jakarta mouse catching marathon staged in the grounds of  the President’s own Palace in Bogor only last month.

Sources close to the President confirmed that Budi’s political affiliations with  PDI-P were no bar to holding the office and that while Budi had no current plans to run for the Presidency in 2014, consideration was certainly being given to 2019.
