Deputy Prime Minister, Manoa Kamikamica says he has been in the private sector for more than 30 years and has never in his life seen the type of allowances that were paid to the FijiFirst government.

He highlighted this while supporting the motion moved by Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka to reduce the rates payable for overseas travelling allowances for the Prime Minister, Cabinet Ministers, Assistant Ministers, Leader of the Opposition and Members of Parliament.

Kamikamica says in the private sector the allowances of the UN are regarded as the highest.

Kamikamica says the excessive nature of these allowances is too much and the previous government were making money on their allowances.

He has also confirmed that as soon as they got into office, he reduced his overseas travel allowance to 100 percent and some other ministers did the same however, this should have been done a long time ago.
