(FreedomJournal.org)- Kim Jong Un, the communist dictator leading North Korea, has reportedly fallen into a coma. Media outlets suggest that the dictator’s sister, Kim Yo-jong, is taking the reins of power and will become the next leader of the authoritarian nation.
It comes just days after reports suggested Kim Jong Un handed over some elements of control of the country over to his sister.
Chang Song-min, a former aid of the president of South Korea, told South Korean media that the 36-year-old leader of North Korea is in a coma, “But his life has not ended.”
Song-min said that Kim Yo Jong is in the process of assuming taking over the country while her brother is incapable of leading.
“A complete succession structure has not been formed, so Kim Yo-jong is being brought to the fore as the vacuum cannot be maintained for a prolonged period,” he added, before suggesting that the death of the country’s leader “could spell disaster for the country.”
According to The Mirror, the National Intelligence Service that the Kim will still be able to “exert absolute power” despite the fact that he appears to be in a coma. The fact that there was no structure in place for somebody else to take control just shows what a shambles communist dictatorships tend to be.
This isn’t the first time that there have been reports of Kim Jong Un being unwell, or incapacitated. Earlier this year, in April, rumors circulated that the dictator had died following a heart operation. After reporters and intelligence officials seemed fairly certain the leader was extremely unwell, he appeared in public and in a series of propaganda videos designed to signal strength. He was seen with marks on his arms consistent with IV drips.
Some people even argued that it wasn’t Kim Jong Un at all..but a body double. Footage showing the leader at a ribbon cutting ceremony was published by state media, but the International Business Times said that it wasn’t him at all…but a body double. The outlet claimed that it is a “well-known fact that Kim uses body doubles.”
If that’s true, could it be that the North Korean dictator has been ill and incapable of leading the country for much of this year? That would explain why negotiations with the United States and South Korea came to an abrupt end after negotiations began to look positive.
