North Korean media silent on Kim Jong Un’s health, whereabouts

Even on Wednesday, there were no reports on the health of the 36-year old tyrant. The hypothesis about the leader’s health began on April 15th when he was unable to attend an anniversary celebration of the solitary kingdom’s founding father and Kim’s grandfather. 

The official Rodong Sinmun newspaper printed Kim’s undated comments on the economy, but no news on his whereabouts. There has been growing international speculation about his health, as the overweight authoritarian was known to be seriously ill after a cardiovascular procedure. 

A representative from the South Korean blue house said that they could shed no light on the rumors of Kim’s illness. President Donald Trump who had held summits with Kim in 2018 and 2019 said that “We don’t know if the reports are true”.
