The ANC Youth League in KwaZulu-Natal has vowed to take to the streets should the government not implement free education. File PictureDurban - The ANC Youth League in KwaZulu-Natal wanted nothing less than free education - and the government’s failure to deliver on this will lead to the league leading student protests, said ANCYL provincial secretary Thanduxolo Sabelo. He said this in response to the report on fee-free education, which President Jacob Zuma released on Monday.
Durban - The KwaZulu-Natal ANC executive committee (PEC) has apparently been left in the dark about the formation of a provincial dispute resolution committee to be led by Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor which is to deal with branch general meetings’ appeals. During a press briefing held in Durban on Wednesday, ANC provincial secretary Super Zuma said the existence of the committee came as rumours to the PEC.
Durban - ANC Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa changed his tune on Monday after his unprecedented decision to announce a team he wants to lead the governing party with, saying the party's branches still have the right to nominate their preferred candidates. Ramaphosa’s statement was issued following a barrage of criticism from the party structures - the ANCYL and uMkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
