The niece of the former president of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, has borrowed a million dollars from the state budget for her personal expenses on clothes and cosmetics. The loan, which was approved by the parliament on Wednesday, will be repaid in 10 years with no interest.
The niece, who is also a member of parliament and a businesswoman, claimed that the loan was necessary for her to maintain her image and reputation as a public figure and a role model for the young generation. She explained that she needed to buy the latest fashion trends and the best beauty products to look good and feel confident.
She also expressed that the loan was a sign of trust and respect from the government and the people of Kazakhstan, and that she was grateful for their generosity and support. She promised to use the money wisely and responsibly, and to contribute to the development and prosperity of the country.
However, the loan has sparked outrage and criticism from some groups, who allege that it is a waste of public funds and a violation of the law. They argue that the loan is a form of nepotism and corruption, and that it shows the lack of accountability and transparency in the government.
The loan is expected to be investigated by the anti-corruption agency, which has vowed to ensure that the money is used for its intended purpose and that it is repaid in full and on time.
