Somare tells MP Sam Basil : 'I'm going to kill you'

By ABC PNG correspondent LIAM FOX
A session of Papua New Guinea's parliament has ended with an extraordinary outburst by prime minister Sir Michael Somare, who threatened to kill an opponent.
After a ceremony in parliament to swear in the governor-general, the leader of government business moved to suspend parliament until November 16.
When the speaker called for 'ayes' and 'no's', the no's were noticeably louder.
But the speaker said "the ayes have it" and adjourned parliament without calling for a division to count the numbers.
As members were leaving the house, Sir Michael walked towards the opposition benches, pointed at MP Sam Basil and yelled in pidgin: "I'm going to kill you outside".
Only hours earlier the opposition gave the speaker notice for a motion of no confidence in Sir Michael.

    We always knew Sir Michael has gone pass his use by date. This is just further proof that he has. He's gone senile, he's an old angry man who thinks he's the only one who has wisdom. Well he ain't!!! He must go. Sam should take him to court for this threat.

    Sam Basil is NO PM material. He is behind the Bulolo burning.. He is an halfcaste with no ethnic connections

    Senile Dementia at best ..... role model? Definitely not!! That old fuck has lost his mind and should have been put to pasture long time ago. He and his blatantly arrogant son are not good for PNG.

    Has anyone seen the arrogance of the daughter? Thinking that she's God's gift to journalism and public relations when she's nothing!

    The fucker who wrote about Sam Basil having no ethnic connection probably has his face on his dick. Sam Basil grew up in rural PNG, just like our many wantoks in the villages. He shows more empathy than any other bubble-head MP in the current government.

    He may be not PM material but he definitely walks the talk
