The fate of Kunanbay, strict but fair judge of County, whose son, for centuries, will celebrate their homeland and their people.

Kunanbay according to eyewitnesses and contemporaries were strict but fair. Sometimes he had to solve serious litigation and disagreements among his own relatives, who did not want to reconcile with the decision of township. The choice was between duty and justice. And the little son of Ibrahim Kunanbay, did not always understand how hard it gives the father a decision. Only many years later, the great philosopher Ibrahim, who remained in the history of Abay, began to understand his own father.
