Five people were Thursday charged with recruiting students into the Al-Shabaab terror group. The five - two teachers and three students from Majills El-Maarif El-Islamiya in Kikambala - are accused of propagating radical and extremist teachings with the aim of recruiting learners into the terror group. The teachers identified as Yahya Salim Bakari and Ismael Muzammil alias Jabal were accused of trying to radicalise a student who has since been placed under witness protection.
A British national has disputed a will that gives him and his siblings 40 per cent of his uncle’s Sh210 million estate in Kwale County. Mr Anthony Patrick Rowan, his wife, and his two siblings have asked the court to discard their uncle, John Francis Foster’s will, claiming that he was either coerced into writing it or it was altered before he died. Rowan said he does not understand why he and the other complainants only got 40 per cent of the estate.
Two more suspects were detained for 14 days by a magistrate court in Mombasa for allegedly vandalising a section of the Standard Gauge Railway at Mariakani in Kilifi County. David Musyoki Nziu and Nicholas Mutuku John, were brought to court while Samuel Kamau Maina, Joseph Mbugua and James Ndichu Mburu were charged on the same day. The suspects risk a death sentence if convicted by the court.
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".
