 The most impor­tant con­di­tion for the well-being of cit­i­zens is a sta­ble job and a sta­ble income. Work — that feeds me and my fam­i­ly. This is the most impor­tant mea­sur­able cri­te­ri­on for the work of the President and the Government, and akims of all lev­els. ” This is a pro­gram­mat­ic quote from the chair­man of the Adal par­ty, Serik Sultangaliyev,  post­ed  on the home page of the par­ty website.

In the last par­lia­men­tary elec­tions, Adal, a par­ty that posi­tions itself as cen­ter-right with sup­port for the mid­dle class and busi­ness, gained just over 3.5%. Perhaps because its leader did not him­self work in the pri­vate sec­tor, pre­fer­ring the civ­il ser­vice or the work of a hired top man­ag­er in qua­si-state struc­tures. In less than 40 years, Sultangaliev has gone from the archi­tect of the Soviet Kazgorstroyproekt Institute to the chair­man of the board of direc­tors of the gas monop­oly KazTransGas, a sub­sidiary of the state-owned com­pa­ny KazMunayGas.

In 2014–2015, Sultangaliev was already clear­ly prepar­ing for retire­ment: he took the post of chair­man of the board of Kaztransgaz, launched his polit­i­cal project. In those same years, his wife became a co-own­er of a British firm set up to buy real estate. A lux­u­ri­ous apart­ment was pur­chased at the same time.

The Knightsbridge Apartments are locat­ed in London’s Knightsbridge area  . This is the very cen­ter of London, very close to Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace. We have already  talked about him : the apart­ment of Kairat’s son Mami is locat­ed nearby.

The 11-storey com­plex for 200 lux­u­ry apart­ments was com­plet­ed in 2006. The res­i­dents are pro­vid­ed with under­ground park­ing, a fit­ness cen­ter and a swim­ming pool. The apart­ment on the eighth floor is for­mal­ly owned by Almerek Limited, reg­is­tered in December 2014.

Almerek Limited has three co-own­ers: Zamira Imanbekova, wife of Serik Sultangaliev, their daugh­ter Aigerim Sultangalieva and, appar­ent­ly, her hus­band Abai Zhanabaev. This 43-year-old man is hard­ly men­tioned in open sources: in 2008 he was  intro­duced  as “the com­mer­cial direc­tor of the Trade House Kazmunaigaz UK Ltd”. There is no such per­son in the offi­cial doc­u­ments of the com­pa­ny on the web­site of British companies.

Zamira Imanbekova is not only the wife of Serik Sultangaliev, but also the sis­ter of the wife of Murat Kudyshev, the for­mer deputy chair­man of the board of the state Development Bank of Kazakhstan.

The Sultangaliev fam­i­ly bought the apart­ment in March 2015. The amount of the trans­ac­tion was not dis­closed, but the com­pa­ny has a prop­er­ty on its bal­ance sheet for £ 5.2 mil­lion. Now this apart­ment is more expen­sive, in five years prices have increased by about 20% — that is, it is fair to assume that now at least £ 6 mil­lion can be obtained for it. This is 10 times more than the Adal par­ty spent on its elec­tion cam­paign in the majilis elec­tions this year.

Right now, in The Knightsbridge Apartments,  a 170 m² apart­ment is being sold for the same amount  on the “gar­den” floor, that is, on the first one with access to the court­yard: two bed­rooms, a large com­mon room, a kitchen and two bathrooms.
