Well there’s a media frenzy with the so-called reappearance of Kim Jong-un the leader of the Stalinist state of North Korea.
So far current information is based on the regime’s own propaganda machine in a report covering Kim and his note taking officials giving “field guidance” at a newly built residential district and a science institute reports KCNA Watch.
Last time we saw Kim – again via state run media – he was limping heavily, and it appears in the images that support this supposedly recent report he is now using a walking cane.
Dates of Kim’s “field guidance” were not given in the report which was published by state mouthpiece, Rodong Sinmun. The “field guidance” and his appearance cannot be independently verified, so it won’t be enough to end speculation on what is happening at the highest levels of the hermit kingdom.
Rumors and concerns about the stability of North Korea will continue.
The above CNN clip covers the issues, but it mentions that they have not seen the images below.
But none of us have a clue what’s going on.
