Of recent; the NRM Diaspora league has dominated the media with stories of illegal issuance of ‘fake’ NRM membership cards. This forced the party’s SG Justine Kasule Lumumba to issue out a warning to all members and also said investigations were being carried out to find out those behind this and their motive. Red Pepper’s HENRY MULINDWA caught up with the Diaspora League chairman Hajji Abbey Kigozi Walusimbi about this scandal and related matters.
NRM National Vice Chairman Moses Kigongo has warned a splinter NRM Diaspora group against using his name in printing fake NRM membership cards purportedly for Diaspora members. This follows media reports last week in which a group of members claiming to belong to the Diaspora addressed the press in Kampala and claimed that Kigongo is aware of their group to which he is also their patron despite the fact that the party has a fully-fledged NRM Diaspora league led by Hajji Abbey Walusimbi.
Massive Resignations have rocked a splinter group of NRM Diaspora league, with fresh information indicating that its top leaders led by Eng. Adam Kasambula have resigned. Others to follow suit include Edris Kironde and Yusuf Musoke. The NRM diaspora league led by Haji Abbey Walusimbi has been involved in power squabbles which saw a splinter group allegedly led by Patrick Asiimwe emerging.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
