Alcohol a Threat to Kim Guardianship Role
By Park Seong Guk

Despite treatment in China for her dependence on alcohol, 66-year old Chosun Workers Party Secretary Kim Kyung Hee has been unable to stop drinking and is in increasingly ill-health as a consequence, Daily NK has been informed.
A Japanese source explained on the 24th, Due to the long term damage caused by her drinking, Kim Kyung Hee went to China in secret for treatment. However, she still has not been able to quit drinking, to the point where her poor health may make it hard for her to work by this time next year.
Currently she is not at that point, but I hear that if she keeps drinking she will find it harder to work, and that includes playing the role of Kim Jong Euns guardian, the source added.
Kim Kyung Hee does not currently go to work at the Central Party, but she does do her work at home. In particular, she is capable of performing tasks pertaining to personnel matters for key posts, the source reaffirmed, before noting the potential for a struggle for influence in the event that she ceases to be able to execute her obligations.
A source within Chongryon, the pro-North Korean association in Japan, confirmed the story about Kim, pointing out also that Kims poor health is a blow to the authority of Jang Sung Taek, and will have a detrimental effect on the guardianship system surrounding Kim Jong Eun over the longer term.
The wretched regime is dying.
Hennessy? NK is their biggest customer!
The question is how much it is going to take to clean up the corpse?
Better not to finesse it. It won’t work.
There is probably more nutritional value in booze than in tree bark.....
I somehow doubt she’s slurping Makali out of a bowl like a peasant or even doing shots of Soju.
Throw it a match and it should be done burning in a week or so...
I shudder to imagine how many livers of dissidents she has gone through by now.
Knowing that she must still feel the pain of losing her daughter makes me almost sympathetic to her.
She indeed lost her daughter, who reportedly killed herself while studying in France.
and drinking yourself to death is the solution?
Everyone - the people of North Korea - every living breathing thing in the world. Everything - everybody - would be better off with this regime dead.
They've added nothing - but misery...
I like anything that pokes fun at the Kennedys, but from what locals in MASS have told me, Teddy rarely paid for his own drinks, much less anyone else’s.
Something tells me she isn’t swilling whatever rotgut the average man-on-the-street drowns his sorrows in. When she goes is might help the North Korean balance of payments.
