A South Korean diplomatic source has speculated that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is in a coma, and his sister Kim Yo-jong is getting a chance to take over the reins of the country.
According to the New York post, Chang Song-min, a former aide to South Korea’s late president Kim Dae-jung, made the sensational claims to South Korean media. Chang Added that Kim is in a coma, “but his life has not ended.”
Chang also said after the South Korean intelligence agency’s allegations that the 36-year-old North Korean leader had handed over part of his authority to his close aides, including his younger sister.
In a private meeting with lawyers last week, South Korea’s national intelligence agency said Kim Yo-jung, the first vice department director of the Workers Party’s central committee, was handling the overall affairs of the delegation, although his brother was still handling everything. Yet there are many doubts about the legitimacy of the diplomats’ claims.
Because this is not the first time there has been a lot of speculation about Kim’s health. The Hermit Kingdom leader was not seen in public for about three weeks in April, when it was revealed that he had undergone heart surgery.
The North Korean government has never commented on Kim’s absence, including why he missed a commemoration that celebrated the 108th birthday of his late grandfather, North Korea founder Kim II-sung. The video of Kim’s wandering person comes to light while observing a fertilizer factory near Pyongyang. A South Korean government official told Fox News that our government believes they have not received any indication that Kim is receiving medical treatment.
