The High Court in Mzuzu has ruled that President Peter Mutharika and the Ministry of Local Government erred when it installed David Chiwaya as sub-Traditional Authority (ST/A) Mwacheka of Senior Chief Dzoole in Dowa and has subsequently nullified the presidential decree. Passing his determination in a judicial review on civil case number 40 of 2014, High Court judge Dingiswayo Madise has ordered the installation of Jerunsan Banda within 60 days from July 19, the day the ruling was made.
Confusion continues to mar President Peter Mutharika’s pledge to construct a new airport in Mzuzu, the latest being revelations that government is yet to decide on where it will be located out of the three places that were identified. The project, which will cost about $20 million, is one of the pledges Mutharika made to the people of the Northern Region some two years go. Despite the pledge, government has failed to settle for one site where the project will be implemented.
DE M O C R AT I C Progressive Party (DPP) has deployed ‘spies’ to state grain trader, Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc), in a move party officials say is aimed at curbing alleged ‘rampant corruption’ on money government has set aside for the purchase of farm produce in the 2016/17 financial year. The move follows allegations of corrupt practices that the grain trader is buying produce, particularly maize, from large scale traders at the expense of small scale farmers.
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".
