He was the supreme leader of North Korea after succeeding his father Kim il-sung who was also the founder of the DPRK, having died at the age of 69 the newer leader will be succeeded with by his son. He was a man that was portrayed as having good health, but behind the scenes he was reported to have suffered a stroke and also had problems related to pancreatic cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Early suggestions were that his son would become the leader, but it has now been revealed that North Korea’s new leader may have to share the top spot with his uncles and the military. The country is trying to shift into a collective rule and away from the one man dictatorship that was seen not so long ago.

It is no surprise to hear that the North Korean military are trying to develop a nuclear arsenal, a fact that has many nation’s worried none more so than South Korea.

The strange new collective government will still not ease concerns of the west, but it is hoped that with more brains thinking through key developments no rash action will be taken as a country who are interested in nuclear weaponry may also use them if they were pushed.
