North Korean leader Kim Jong- Un is a man not to be chal­lenged. But his lat­est burst of anger was di­rected at the coun­try’s ter­rapin farm­ers. Ap­par­ently, he doled out ‘ ex­pert’ ad­vice and ‘ field guid­ance’ dur­ing his trip, and strongly crit­i­cized the short­com­ings, in­com­pe­tence and ir­re­spon­si­ble work style.
