Amid rumours of an addiction to Swiss cheese and video evidence of a severe limp, North Korea’s despotic supreme leader Kim Jong-un has disappeared from public life.
Cue frenzied discourse as to his whereabouts and what it all means for the future of the “Hermit Kingdom”.
Owing to the country’s secrecy, no one knows exactly what is going on. But here are some theories…
When did we last see him?
Kim was last seen in public on 3rd September when he was walking with a visible limp.
He has since missed several high-profile public events – including the founding day of the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea on 9 September and the Supreme People’s Assembly two weeks later.
