Segepok Uang di Laci Meja Pak Lurah

Lurah Kandacong sama sekali tidak menduga bila sang istri mengidap penyakit serius. Semua terlihat normal dan biasa saja.

Kadang-kadang ada keluhan kecil di bagian perut sang istri namun dalam beberapa kejap saja kembali normal.

Rupanya, penyakit itu sedang membentuk koloni diam-diam dalam tubuh sang istri. Ketika penyakit itu semakin kuat, keluhan semakin nyata. Dan dalam sekali serangan brutal, tubuh sang istri pun kolaps tak berdaya.

Pak Lurah yang menemukannya dalam keadaan pingsan sepulang dari kantor berteriak panik dan segera membawanya ke rumah sakit.

“Harus dioperasi, pak!” kata dokter pelan dan dingin, setelah beberapa menit melakukan diagnosa di ruang ICU.

“Apa tidak ada jalan lain, pak.”

Dokter itu menggelengkan kepala, “Kanker ususnya sudah melebar, kami harus melakukan tindakan operasi.”

Lurah Kandacong tertegun sejenak dan mengangguk, meski dengan wajah kurang meyakinkan.

Lurah Kandacong dikenali oleh warga Kalimana sebagai lurah yang jujur dan bersih. Rumahnya sederhana untuk ukuran lurah.

Mobil yang digunakan sehari-hari adalah mobil tua yang dibeli selepas panen kebun.

Track record-nya sebagai pemimpin bersih sangat terjaga rapi. Sejak kepemimpinannya, tak ada satupun praktik pungli terjadi.

Lurah Kandacong tidak segan-segan menindak aparatnya yang ketahuan memungut uang dari warga di luar dari aturan yang berlaku.

Sudah lima tahun lebih memimpin, pelayanan Lurah Kandacong sangat memuaskan warga. Bahkan petisi untuk mempertahankan pernah dilakukan warga Kalimana ketika mendengar ada wacana rotasi dari wali kota.

Tiba-tiba kabar buruk beredar berantai. Pelan tetapi membesar dan sedang mempertanyakan reputasi pak Lurah yang selama lima tahun bertahan.

Semua bermula dari dua orang pegawai kelurahan menemukan uang puluhan juta di laci meja kerja Lurah Kandacong. Kedua pegawai memang ditugaskan oleh Pak Lurah untuk mengambil kantong plastik yang ada di meja pak Lurah untuk dibawa ke rumah sakit. Semula sang pegawai tidak menaruh curiga dengan isi kantong plastik itu. Namun, tanpa sengaja kaki sang pegawai terantuk dan isi kantong itu pun berceceran.

“Astaga…. Uang isinya!” bisik salah seorang pegawai dengan wajah kaget. Pegawai lainnya ikut kaget.

“Iiih… darimana pak lurah dapat ini uang?”

Keduanya segera merapikan isi kantong dan membawanya ke rumah sakit.

Entah bagaimana caranya, kabar tentang segepok uang di laci pak Lurah itu beredar luas di publik. Tudingan pun bermunculan. Beberapa orang pegawai kelurahan yang pernah dipecat oleh Lurah ikut bersuara.

“Gaya-naji pak Lurah. Katanya jujur ternyata parakang doe tonji (pemakan uang).” Kata salah seorang warga.

“Iya-di, tidak kusangka sekali. Padahal beliaumi panutan. Jujur, adil, ramah. Deeh ternyata ijo tong matanya liat uang.”

“Eh, tunggu tawwa. Siapa tahu uang pribadinya itu. Perasaan dulu, pak Lurah pernah tolak suap waktu ada pelepasan tanah warga.”

“Siapa tahu pencitraanji.”

Isu bergerak liar.

Lurah Kandacong yang sedang cuti tidak mengerti apa yang terjadi di luar sana. Dia sedang fokus menemani istrinya yang sedang dioperasi. Wajah Lurah Kandacong sumringah setelah mendengar keterangan dokter yang menyatakan operasi berjalan lancer dan kanker yang menggerogoti usus istri pak Lurah bisa diangkat.

Seminggu setelah operasi, sang istri sudah diperkenankan kembali ke rumah.

*****

Lurah Kandacong sedikit terheran. Sambutan para pegawainya tidak hangat sebagaimana biasa. Semua terlihat dingin dan cuek. Tidak ada ucapan selamat yang diterimanya karena istrinya sembuh dari penyakit. Hanya ada segelintir orang kepercayaannya yang memberi sapaan ramah.

Lurah Kandacong tidak ambil pusing. Rasa gembira atas kesembuhan istrinya cukuplah membuat hatinya gembira.
Dia segera masuk ke ruangannya dan mulai bekerja sebagaimana biasa.

“Rasmi…..!” Lurah Kandacong memanggil nama sekretarisnya. Yang dipanggil segera datang. “Bagaimana persiapan Isra Mi’raj besok? Sudah hubungi Kyai Saleh?”

“Iye Pak. Panitia kelurahan sudah menghubungi pak Kyai. Tapi saya belum tahu infonya, apa pak Kyai bersedia hadir atau tidak.”

“Wah… tidak bisa. Kyai Saleh harus hadir sebagai penceramah.” Lurah Kandacong segera meraih ponsel di celananya dan menghubungi Kyai Saleh.

Wajah Pak Lurah terlihat masam. Tampaknya, Kyai Saleh tidak dapat menghadiri acara Isra Miraj yang telah dijadwalkan. Pihak panitia terlambat menghubunginya. Kyai Saleh terlanjur menerima jadual pada hari yang sama.

“Beginimo Kyai. Kami undur saja sehari.” Kata Pak Lurah.

“Janganmi. Banyakji penceramah. Begini Pak Lurah.. kalau ada waktu sebentar malam datang ke masjid Nurul Autar, ada yang ingin saya tanyakan kepadamu.” Kata Kyai Saleh di seberang sana.

“Wah, kebetulan Kyai. Ada juga hal yang ingin saya bicarakan dengan kita.”

******

Lurah Kandacong telah tiba di masjid menjelang azan Magrib. Dia datang dengan pakaian dinas. Selepas pulang kantor, dia langsung menuju ke masjid untuk menemui Kyai Saleh.

Seusai salat Magrib, para santri Kyai Saleh membentuk formasi setengah lingkaran. Lurah Kandacong duduk di samping Kyai Saleh.

“Anak-anakku, kebetulan pak Lurah sudah ada. Selesaikanlah rasa penasaran kalian.” Kata Kyai Saleh.
Lurah Kandacong terlihat kaget mendengar kalimat Kyai Saleh. Dia menatap wajah para jamaah masjid dengan wajah sedikit pucat.

“Penasaran karena apa, Kyai?” Lurah Kandacong bertanya.

“Pak Lurah. Uang apa yang ditemukan di laci ta itu?” Sampara angkat suara menginterupsi.
Lurah Kandacong terperanjat kaget.

“Darimana kalian tahu ada uang di laci meja kerja saya??” Pak Lurah balik bertanya.
Salah seorang jamaah lalu menceritakan berita yang didengarnya.

“Ooo.. jadi ini sebabnya para pegawaiku terlihat dingin.” Gumam Pak Lurah.

“Pak Lurah belum menjawab pertanyaan Sampara?” Ale ikut bertanya dengan suara sedikit tinggi.
Lurah Kandacong kemudian tersenyum kecil. Para jamaah terlihat keki.

“Wah… jadi ceritanya saya dipanggil kesini untuk diadili ya, Kyai?”

Kyai Saleh hanya tersenyum. “mendengar informasi dari pihak langsung jauh lebih baik dari pada mendengar berita. Pak Lurah.”

“Kalian pasti kaget mendengar uang siapa sebenarnya itu. Dan atas keperluan itu pula, saya datang. Kalian pasti telah menuduhku berbuat curang. Tapi percayalah, saya tetap La Kandacong yang kalian kenal dulu.”

“Janganmi bertele-tele. Itu uang dari mana? Kenapa ada di lacita.”
Lurah Kandacong diam sejenak.

“Itu uang Kyai Saleh.”

Kyai Saleh dan para jamaah terperanjat kaget.

“Eh, jangki macam-macam Pak Lurah. Jangan bawa-bawa nama Kyai. Fitnah namanya.”

“Fitnah apa? Itu memang uang Kyai Saleh. Jumlahnya 10 juta rupiah. Uang itu telah membantu istri saya kemarin ketika operasi. Saya kekurangan uang, jadi saya ingat ada uang Kyai Saleh di laci saya. Saya terpaksa meminjamnya dan akan saya kembalikan setelah panen kebun saya bulan depan.”

Para jamaah semakin kebingungan. Penjelasan Lurah Kandacong tidak masuk akal bagi mereka.

“Kenapa bisa itu uang Kyai Saleh? Sedangkan pak Kyai sendiri merasa tidak memiliki?”
Lurah Kandacong tersenyum.

“Begini. Pertama kali saya menjabat sebagai lurah, saya mengundang Kyai Saleh ceramah di kantor. Ketika pihak kelurahan ingin memberinya honor entah kenapa Kyai Saleh menolaknya. Padahal, jumlahnya cukup besar 500 ribu. Alasan Kyai Saleh menolak karena warga di kelurahan ini adalah juga warganya.

Beliau tidak mau menerima honor. Sebagaimana kalian yang setiap minggu diberi ilmu oleh Kyai Saleh tanpa bayaran sama sekali. Tetapi bagi saya, uang ini tetap adalah hak beliau. Sejak itu, saya selalu mengundang Kyai Saleh dan menyimpan honornya di laci. Kelak saya akan memberikan kepada beliau di ujung karir saya sebagai lurah disini. Rupanya, uang Kyai Saleh itu membantu saya di saat kritis.”

Lurah Kandacong diam sejenak, “kalian boleh datang ke kantor besok dan melihat catatan saya. Tanggal berapa dan berapa honor yang disediakan kepada beliau.”

Semua yang hadir tertegun. Sebagian merasa bersalah telah menaruh buruk sangka kepada Lurah Kandacong.

“Anakku. Itulah kenapa Islam melarang kita berburuk sangka. Kita ini punya batasan pengetahuan. Jangan sampai batasan itu yang membuat kita terpenjara dan memilih untuk berasumsi atas orang lain yang kita sama sekali tidak tahu kebenarannya.

Kritik terhadap pemerintah baik, tetapi berburuk sangka itu berbeda. Kritik bisa menyehatkan, buruk sangka bisa membuat bangsa kita sakit.”

“Kyai, bulan depan saya akan mengembalikan uangta.”

“Janganmi pak. Saya juga tidak merasa itu milik saya. Jika itu sudah membantumu di saat kritis. Syukurlah!”

“Tidak pak. Insya Allah bulan depan panenmi kebun. Lagi pula, saya sudah hampir pensiun sebagai Lurah.”

“Sumbangkan saja kepada anak-anak yatim di kelurahan ini, Pak Lurah.”

Lurah Kandacong menganggukkan kepala.
