Celebration events marking the 69th anniversary of the Korean Workers’ Party traditionally began at midnight local time at the memorial palace in Pyongyang. Kim Jong-un had always attended the events together with other top officials since late 2011, when he came into power, and the country’s media always reported about his presence a few hours after the event.This time, South Korean observers said there were no such reports, giving rise to rumours about the North Korean leader’s health problems.
Kim Jong-un has not appeared in public since September 3, and it gives grounds to foreign experts on North Korea to talk about his worsening health.
North Korea’s central television in a news broadcast on September 26 partially confirmed the suppositions, when showing an unprecedented video of limping Kim Jong-un, and the broadcaster explained: “The marshal, despite illness, as a flow of flame, is continuing going the way of leading the nation”.
Later, South Korea's Minister of Unification Ryoo Kihl-jae denied the reports about illness of Kim Jong-un. When he asked about the health of the North Korean leader, the answer was that he had no health problems, the minister said after a meeting with a North Korean government delegation in Incheon on October 5.
