Kim Jong-Un Is Alive But Cannot Stand Up Or Walk By Himself – Former North Korean Diplomat Reveals
Thae Yong-ho, a high-profile North Korean Defector and Former Diplomat has disclosed that President Kim Jong-un is alive but is probably unable to walk or stand up amid claims that he had died after a surgery.
Yong-ho who is a former Diplomat for the rogue state and now a South Korean politician, says the leader’s absence from the celebrations known as ‘the Day of the Sun’ proves he is ill or injured.
He told CNN: “Kim Jong Un is not only the leader of North Korea, but he is the grandson of Kim Il-sung … to North Korean eyes it is really abnormal.“I’m not quite sure whether he really had some surgery or whatever, but one thing is clear… he cannot stand up by himself or walk properly.”
Seoul and Washington have played down rumours that Kim is gravely ill or dead, but Thae said only the supreme leader’s family and closest aides would know the truth.
The dictator has not been seen in public since April 11 and this has sparked reports that he has died or is in a vegetative state following heart surgery.
On April 15, he inexplicably missed a Day of the Sun celebration honouring his grandfather Kim Il-Sung, the founder of North Korea.
His unprecedented absence sparked a wave of speculation about his health, and he has not been seen in public since.
