Rumours of the death of North Korea’s Supreme Leader/dictator, Kim Jong-un has emerged again amid reports of his failing health.
Some media outlets in China and Japan have reported that Kim Jong-un is dead, or is on his death bed with no hope for recuperation.
Some days ago, China sent a medical team to their communist neighbors week to check in/advise Kim, as concerns over his health grow.
A Hong Kong-backed news channel’s vice director — who’s apparently the niece of a Chinese foreign minister — blasted out the news herself … he’s dead. This has however not been confirmed.
The woman put the report on a social media app called Weibo for her nearly 15 million followers to read, citing a “very solid source” about the claim Kim had, in fact, perished. A Japanese magazine reports he’s in a “vegetative state” after a heart surgery gone wrong.
The outlet reports — citing a Chinese medical expert privy to the situation — that Kim had clutched his chest in early April and fell down while visiting the countryside there.
He needed a stent procedure done, but apparently … it either wasn’t done rapidly enough, or it was botched completely by the surgeon — with some reports saying he had shaky hands.
There has been no official confirmation.
