Since many days the Rumours of Kim Jong-un’s death is continuing all over the internet. There is no official information about Kim Jong’s health from North Korea. South Korean and Chinese officials have publicly cast doubt on reports that Kim was seriously ill after cardiovascular surgery, the speculation fueled up when he found missing from the birthday commemoration of his grandfather and North Korea’s founder Kim Il Sung.
Even US officials also showed concern about his heath. America’s president Donald Trump wished for his long life and recovery. But recently a top USA journalist tweeted that Kim is brain dead, later the tweet has been deleted.
Among all these, South Korea announced that Kim Jong-un is alive and well. His train is spotted at Wonsan, maybe he is on bed rest after his surgery.
But, if rumors are true who will rule North Korea? These are the possibilities:
- Kim Yo Jong (Sister): From the last seven decades North Korea is ruled by the same family. So Kim’s Sister Kim Yo Jong is the first in the race. She is also the vice director of the ruling Workers’ Party’s powerful Central Committee but unofficially as her brother’s chief of staff.
- Kim Jong-Chul (Older Brother): He is known for soft personality and love for Guitar more than politics. Though he has never been considered as a ruler, due to his royal blood he can be next in line.
- Choe Ryong-Hae: Another candidate is the leader’s current No 2, Choe Ryong-Hae who is known to be Kim’s ‘go-to person’.
- Kim’s Son: Though there is no authentic information available about Kim Jong-un’s children. Some sources said that his oldest son was born in 2010. So, if by chance he inherits the power, he’ll have to rule under some form of regent until they come of age.
Time will tell whether the rumors are correct or not, still, the life of Kim Jong-Un full up with many hidden facts.
