Krymbek Kusherbayev resigned as Mangistau oblast Akim (Governor), Tengrinews.kz reports citing the message of his advisor Zhanna Oishybayeva.
“At the Maslikhat meeting today the President said that Krymbek Kusherbayev asked to release him from his position. The President accepted his resignation. The President noted that there was no fault of Krymbek Kusherbayev in Zhanaozen clashes. Everything happened because of incompetent actions of former management of KazMunaiGas that did not want to contact their employees,” Zhanna Oishybayeva told Tengrinews.kz. According to her, Nursultan Nazarbayev left for Zhanaozen after the meeting with the oblast administration.
Baurzhan Mukhametzhanov was appointed new Akim (Mayor) of Mangistau oblast. Earlier he served as the Senate deputy and the Minister of Interior.
KazMunaiGas management was changed as well. The national company is now headed by former Vice-Minister of Oil and Gas Lyazzat Kiinov.
