Kim Jong-Un has lost control of North Korea

A former North Korean counter-intelligence officer has claimed that Kim Jong-Un is no longer in control of the nation and is now just a 'puppet leader'. The capital, Pyongyang has been placed into lockdown with even the elite banned from entering or leaving, according to a respected news site. This adds weight to claims, as a North Korean expert said that this kind of measure is only put in place when a coup has taken place - or is suspected.


Kim Jong-Un was actually overthrown in 2013 and that the political strings in North Korea are being pulled by the powerful Organization and Guidance Department (OGD), which used to report directly to Kim Jong-il, Kim Jong-Un's father. North Korea is currently embroiled in a sort of civil war, he said in his speech. Some officials want to keep the communist status quo, he said, others are open to elements of capitalism being introduced.
