It has nothing to do with his health, but with political issues! How come? Read on!

In case you are wondering why the North Korean leader always travels around the planet with his super expensive customized cars, which include his luxury Mercedes Maybach S62 and Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman, well we have got the answer here on Naijauto for you.

Kim is obviously not a big fan of air travel. His trip to Beijing recently was his 1st forage outside North Korea, which he did by private train. So, anywhere Kim goes, his car must follow.


North Korean leader's security services must always stay on guard whenever Kim Jong Un is relieving himself inside his disguise toilet car

Kim Jong UN’s Mercedes Maybach S600 Pullman Guard measures 21.3 feet, longer than the standard version of Maybach by 4.5 feet. It comes equipped with steel and armoured floor, and laminated windows for withstanding explosives and bullets. He recently got a Rolls-Royce Phantom as new official presidential vehicle

Defector Lee Yun-Keol, who previously worked in North Korean Guard Command before his defection in 2005 to South Korea, said a vehicle in Kim Jong Un’s convoy is a rolling restroom.

Lee Yun-Keol said:

“Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels”

It was further added by the defector that the North Korean leader had to customize his super expensive armoured car with a ‘working toilet’ in order to prevent foreign spies from taking samples, which could be a pointer in knowing the current state of his health. The CIA according to Ellensburg Daily Record’s report has made several attempts in collecting the world leaders’ fecal facts in the past. Such intelligence report is definitely what Kim is trying to protect as much as possible.


Kim Jong Un surely doesn't like air travel, which explains why he has a special car containing toilet facilities

He further said:

“The leader’s excretions contain information about his health status, so they can’t be left behind”

It is no strange to us that the luxury automaker, Mercedes, has denied knowing the way the North Korean leader used to purchase his armoured Mercedes badge cars despite sanctions from United Nations.

Daimler said:

“Our company has had no business connections with North Korea for far more than 15 years now and strictly complies with E.U. and U.S. embargoes”

From the report gotten from Center for Advanced Defense Studies in Washington, as much as ninety countries, which is inclusive of UN security council, member states and allies of US – Japan, Russia, South Korea and China, acted as the North Korean means of obtaining luxury goods between the periods of 2015 – 2017.
