Kazakhstan’s Newest Brown-Noser

8 Mar

To mark International Women’s Day, Kazakhstan Majlis member Baktygul Khamenova has been inducted into the Loyal and Ancient Order of the Brown Nose for once again raising the topic that refuses to die – the renaming of Kazakhstan’s capital.

Khamenova took the renaming frenzy up to another level on 3 March when she proposed renaming Astana airport to Nazarbayev, after Kazakhstan’s first president.

The board of the Loyal and Ancient Order of the Brown Nose declared Khamenova the first female inductee from Kazakhstan on 8 March. There already many male toadies from Kazakhstan who are members of the Order.

Back in November 2016, the Nur Otan MP suggested that Kazakhstan’s capital take the name Yelbasi, Leader of the Nation, in recognition of President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s long service to the state – he has been the country’s only leader since it gained independence from the Soviet yoke in 1991.

For her persistence in keeping this issue on the agenda, in this time of economic concern and dire financial crisis, Ms Khamenova is to be commended. We can think of no-one more suitable to be elevated to the honourable Order of the Brown Nose.
