Settling allowance

​Was it a publicity stunt?

Kramer recently uploaded on social media a picture of an envelope containing K5,000 in cash, which every Member received following the first sitting of Parliament last Wednesday.

When queried on this first-of-its-kind gesture, the Member for Madang said he does not need the money, even though he knew his action would attract public criticism.

He felt uncomfortable when receiving the money and says it is also a gesture that shows that there are good people in parliament who are representing the people.
