By the time of filing this story, police officers were negotiating with the councillors to set Mr Bahengana free. This comes just days after Daily Monitor reported that the move by the councillors to cause the transfer of Mr Bahengana and Jimmy Mabanja of Masajja Division had paralysed work at the municipal council. Mr Bahengana is separately accused of causing financial loss to the municipality, abuse of office and misconduct, which accusations he vehemently denies.
MAKINDYE. A town clerk in Wakiso District has been evacuated by police after councillors closed him in his office for hours. Councillors of Makindye-Ssabagabo Municipality want Mr John Bahengana transferred for alleged incompetence, abuse of office and misconduct. He vehemently denies the allegations.
Wakiso District councillors have vowed to pass a resolution endorsing sand mining in Lake Victoria and ordered the LC5 chairperson, Mr Matia Lwanga Bwanika, to retract bribery allegations he made against them or face impeachment. “Come January 30, we will pass a formal resolution endorsing sand mining in Lake Victoria. We will not sit back as we lose revenue and jobs. No politics in this,” the district speaker, Mr Simon Nsubuga, said yesterday during a press conference.
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".
