I believe Rotokas permits consonant clusters. The name suggests that it, at the very least, allows word-final consonants. The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language lists it as having 350 possible syllables, and with 6 consonants and 5 vowels that pretty much suggests that it *has* to have at least some clustering.
