Cloud of Mystery over severe health condition of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un

His health may fail post surgery

Wednesday, 22nd April 2020

Chairman of the Worker’s Party of Korea, Kim Jong Un is suspected to be in critical health condition after having undergone a cardiovascular surgery a few days ago. Heated conjectures about his serious state went afloat after his conspicuous absence from last week’s events commemorating his late grandfather and state founder Kim Il Sung’s birthday. The April 15th event is considered the country’s most important holiday.


As per information gathered from a South Korean news website that is known to collect information from informants based within North Korea, Kim underwent the critical procedure but is convalescing now. However, the report is difficult to vet as it is based on the findings of a single anonymous source within the isolated nation.


However as per US intelligence, the health condition of the North Korean leader became more fragile after the surgery. As per CNN reports, US officials, who wish to remain unidentified, may have direct information about the matter and corroborate the fact that Kim’s health is indeed in “grave” danger. In reports issued later, some officials stated that although the fact remains that the North Korean leader has health concerns, the intensity is under speculation. The White House however was not ready to give any comment on the matter.


The health condition of Kim Jong is one of the country’s best kept secrets. The capital city Pyongyang’s stringent methods over information control make it further difficult to glean further details over the matter. Possibilities of a political upheaval due to the alleged health problems of the leader however have been dismissed by South Korea’s private Sejong Institute, who also mention that Kim’s sister is already a figure of substantial influence in the North Korean political scenario.


Supreme Leader of North Korea since 2011, Kim Jong Un had taken over after the death of his father Kim Jong Il in December of the same year.
