MAY 16, 2019

Vice President Jusuf Kalla was given a surprise birthday party during a visit to Geneva on Wednesday to attend the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction meeting. 

The party to celebrate the wily politician's 77th birthday was organized by the head of the National Disaster Agency (BPNB), Lt. Gen. Doni Monardo. 

A small crowd surprised the Sulawesi native and his wife Mufidah at midnight to sing him "Happy Birthday" and presented a unique birthday cake served on a slab of real wood.
