Assume you were Mh Speaker. You have a contentious budget estimates to be debated after they have been withdrawn to avoid been blocked. You know your party was embarrassed by the withdrawal and now the public is anxiously waiting to see what will happen when Megawatt comes back after 21 days. The party caucus meeting is held a day before the D day - they put the ball in your court. AS A GREAT THINKER YOU ARE HIRED TO GIVE MH SPEAKER A WINNING STRATEGY. As you ponder on which formation do you use 4 - 4-2 or 3- 3-2? Your mathematic mind comes handy and you tell her thus" Go forth your honor and follow these steps" So how do you plan the day to ensure you win? STEP1: Change the kanuni and pick a short day (Saturday) this means a maximum of 5 hours will be available i.e. from 9.00 a.m to 2.00 p.m (plus your 30mins) Step2: You reinstate the amended kanuni to give 5+3 mins per MP to contribute. Step3: You be generous with all who want to contribute- encourage more of your party members to come forward to contribute. You will deal with them later Step4: You be creative in listing the names of those who want to contribute. Say in the listing you are following a row or columns which the case may be - just make sure that apart from the head of opposition and the shadow minister all the 'machachari' MPs of opposition come after at least 25th (as they will not be reached) The Mathematical proof: · Time for Minister & deputy 75mins. · Each MP will have 5+3 mins · Minister's answers 7 -10 mins · Average 12 mins (MP+Minister's answer) Therefore maximum number of MPs to contribute = (5x60)-75 = (225mins/12mins = 19 MPs maximum) Hizi wanaita ni mbinu za medani for those who went to Jeshi.
