Condolences to the family and the friends of the famous poet and Honored Worker of Kazakhstan Shomishbay Sariyev
It is with deep sorrow that the First President of Kazakhstan learned of the passing away of Shomishbay Sariyev.
The message reads, in part:
“Shomishbay Nagashbayevich was an eminent representative of Kazakh poetry. As a true patriot of independent Kazakhstan, he contributed significantly to the promoting of national literature and strengthening spiritual growth of the nation leaving a great legacy behind.
He was a brilliant poet largely known for his lyrical poems. In addition, he was a highly regarded author of the lyrics for many popular songs.
I truly believe that we will keep the memory of this outstanding poet, a gifted person and a noble man greatly loved by the nation, always alive in our hearts.”
