Kenjaev, Safarali

Tajik lawyer and politician Safarali Kenjaev was born in 1942 to a

Tajik family of farmers in the village of Choryakkoron, Ispichek Qish-

loq, Pobeida Khojagi, Lenin District. In 1933, his family moved from

the Tagob (Aini District) to Hissar. He was brought up and educated by

his father, Kenja Rajabov, and his mother, Qimat Sharifova. His mother

died in 1957 and his father in 1967. He attended school both in

Choryakkoron and Ispichek. At age 15, he joined the kolkhoz system as

a worker and received a salary. In 1960, after finishing high school, he

entered Tajikistan State University.

Kenjaev began his political career as the regional Attorney General

for Central Asian transport. On November 24, 1992, at the same time

that Rahmon Nabiev was elected on the first ballot as President with

(58% of the vote), Safarali Kenjaev (popularly known to be a Yagh-

nobi) was elected from among three contestants as the Leader of the

Prominent Tajik Figures of the Twentieth Century



Supreme Soviet. In time, Kenjaev became a major decision-maker in

the Nabiev presidency.

Kenjaev's politics combined his deep knowledge of the Soviet law,

especially as it is applied to the republics of Central Asia (Tajikistan in

particular), with a thorough understanding of Soviet government. His

objections to illegal acts committed by those who operated outside the

law indicated his commitment to and reverence for that law. In addition,

he was proficient in the Islamic Shari'a law and had a deep understand-

ing of the differences between the teachings of Imam Hanafiyyah and

the edicts followed by the Wahhabiyyah.

Furthermore, Kenjaev was fully familiar with the Soviet military,

and tried to use this knowledge to harness the energies of the youth of

the republic for the common good. His organization of the National

Front of Tajikistan, created and made operational within a short period

of time, was indicative of the depth of his knowledge about military af-

fairs and about attracting the youth of the nation around a single cause--


Kenjaev's decision to blockade Dushanbe using the forces of the

First and Second National Front is a good example of his understanding

of the non-combatant role of the military. By introducing the blockade,

he paralyzed the economic, military, and ideological forces that con-

tributed to the well-being of the Coalition Government. Stripped of its

constant reinforcement, especially from Hissar, Shahri Nov, Tursun-

zoda, Yovon, Ghozimolik, Jillikul, Qabodion, and Shahrtus, the Coali-

tion Government lost its base of authority and its militia fell victim to

the fresh Tajik, Uzbek, and Russian forces emerging from Uzbekistan.

Finally, Kenjaev was fully familiar with the mission of the United

Nations and of its constituent countries. He wrote letters, sent tele-

grams, and held meetings with people from different levels of society

and with different UN constituents to further the welfare of weaker na-

tions at the international level. Indeed, he made a strong case for inter-

national intervention in Tajikistan not only by Uzbekistan and Russia,

but also by the United Nations.

Kenjaev was supportive of the people of Kulab and of Imomali

Rahmonov. He asserted, however, that in the placement of the cadres,

Rahmonov had committed major mistakes that would come to roost at

his threshold and the threshold of the people of Tajikistan in the future.
