That’s the word on the streets of Pyongyang:
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is in firm control of his government but has hurt his leg, a source with access to the secretive North’s leadership said on Thursday, playing down speculation over the 31-year-old’s health and grip on power.
North Korea’s state media, which usually chronicles Kim’s whereabouts in great detail, has not made any mention of his activities since he attended a concert with his wife on Sept. 3.
The source said that Kim hurt his leg while inspecting military exercises.
“He ordered all the generals to take part in drills and he took part too. They were crawling and running and rolling around, and he pulled a tendon,” the source told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
All kinds of accidents can happen to a busy leader on the move.
