Jakarta. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo sacked Sitti Hikmawatty as commissioner of the Indonesian Commission for Child Welfare, or KPAI, for making an unscientific comment on the “strong sperm” that can permeate women in public swimming pools.

Jokowi signed a dismissal decree for Sitti on April 24, one day after KPAI president Susanto offered to dismiss the president on the recommendation of a commission ethics commission.

The Minister for Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection, I Gusti Ayu Bintang Darmawati, also made a similar recommendation to the president on April 13.

“That’s right. She was fired,” said Setya Utama, the first secretary of the foreign ministry, on Monday.

Sitti became the object of ridicule on social media and the general public, including in some publications abroad, after making an impromptu comment in February that women swimming with men in public pools could be impregnated because ” strong sperm “could survive in the water in the basin.

There is no scientific evidence to support Sitti’s claim.

Sitti said the recommendations for his dismissal were “problematic” since the president of KPAI only made the offer two months after making the offending comment.

Sitti also rejected the recommendation of the KPAI ethics committee to dismiss her, arguing that she had been unfairly persecuted by the public for her statement.

“The public persecution against me has been excessive. The KPAI leadership has shown itself incapable of handling the conflict,” Siti said in a press release on Saturday.
