Brutal autocrat Kim has ordered a rare inspection of the General Political Bureau – a key military organ – to stamp out its “impure attitude”.

The inspection, the first in two decades, comes as Zimbabwe despot Robert Mugabe, a former Marxist, faces a military coup to dethrone him as president.

The chief and deputy chief of the influential bureau, Hwang Pyong-so and Kim Won-hong, were disciplined in the wake of the inspection.

With Mugabe’s impeachment confirmed, Kim ordered Choe Ryong-hae, vice chairman of his ruling Workers’ Party, to bring the army officials to heel.

South Korea’s spy agency, the National Intelligence Service (NIS), revealed details of the inspection in a wide-ranging report submitted to parliament.

“We have been watching the situation as we have gathered such intelligence (on the punishment),” the agency said.

The NIS is still trying to establish the details of their punishment, according to Yonhap News Agency.

The General Political Bureau, formerly headed by Choe, is considered to be one of the most influential military institutions in North Korea.

It wields massive sway over the management of the armed forces, The Korean People’s Army, whose active personnel numbers around 800,000.

Hwang, who became bureau chief in 2014, was deemed to be one of the most powerful military figures in the North Korean high command.

But his shock punishment suggests he may have fallen out of favour with supreme leader Kim.

Hong, who was tasked with running North Korea’s concentration camps, was sacked as Minister for State Security by Kim earlier this year, South Korea confirmed.

His fate was unclear after being charged with corruption, abuse of power and torture in February, 2017.

Kim is also said to be making a concerted effort to soften the blow of international sanctions on public mood, the NIS report said.
