Fears growing over the whereabouts of North Korea leader’s wife

Fears are growing over the safety and whereabouts of North Korea’s first lady, who vanished from public view over several months now. Her last public appearance was in March 2016.

Ri Sol-ju is thought to have tied the knot with her food-loving fella Kim Jong-un in 2009 and soon after she gave birth to his child and heir to the hermit state, Thesun reports

She was always seen in public wearing designer clothes and expensive handbags and has appeared alongside her husband several times as he toured factories and theme parks.

But for the past seven months, nobody has seen her in public. North Korea observers fear she may have fallen into her husband/dictator's bad books and or maybe incurred the wrath of his equally menacing sister, Kim Yo Jong.


Experts believe Yo Jong is the power behind the throne and is even deadlier than her brother. One North Korea watcher told Yonhap News Agency:


“Ri showed up at public events every two months last year but has not appeared in public for over seven months this year. “That’s quite extraordinary.


“Some sources speculate Ri’s disappearance may be linked to a check on her activities by Kim’s younger sister Kim Yo Jong."
