Fukushima chief steps down due to illness, Fukushima Diary, Nov. 28, 2011:
The tweet of the actual Fukushima worker is below:
I heard chief Yoshida stepping down for the first time this evening. I was so shocked. I thought he was fine though.. It seems like it was very confidential.
Everyone was shocked, surprised, and regretting. He was the only person who could fight against the headquarters. I’m afraid it will affect our team work. I don’t know for how long I can stay here to work too, but I’m sad to see him off as a fellow in the battle field.
[...] According to Tepco, it was not Mr. Yoshida’s decision to step down, it was decided by Tepco.
Mr. Yoshida is expected to talk about the truth when he finally becomes free.
