In 2004, when Uchumi was struggling to return from the dead, it decided to sell this plot and invited interested bidders. A Nairobi company, Sidhi Investments, emerged the highest bidder with a price of Sh186 million. Solio got a second title for the same property and this was registered in January 2001 which means that this property now had two titles — even before the original lease had expired. Tarlton sold it in February 1930 to Captain H.V.
By JOHN KAMAUMore by this AuthorBy now, Wafula Chebukati must be pondering why he walked into this electoral circus. Although it comes with a monthly salary of Sh924,000, his is a nerve-wracking appointment. As the chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the package is good: security, a chauffeur, diplomatic passport and first class travel.
Hundreds of traders from Moi and Mukiriti markets yesterday took to the streets of Thika town to protest against planned allocation of public land to ‘outside hawkers’. The protests disrupted business and transport for three hours as the traders marched around the town. The traders said some politicians plan to subdivide a section of Mama Ngina Gardens in Thika town to hawkers believed to be from Githurai, Nairobi and Murang’a. “Some politicians met on Saturday and planned to subdivide the Gardens.
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".
