An Eastern Cape farmer has caused panic in the Stutterheim village of Ndakana after he placed a black coffin near a fence on his farm and allegedly threatened to kill trespassers and put them inside it. This after the farmer, Frans Kruger, lost six prized somba cattle worth R100 000 in less than two weeks. Kruger told the Daily Dispatch that burying the coffin halfway in the ground was his way of protecting his livestock against thieves.
Here are the Eastern Cape’s five most wanted, feared and ferocious men. They are on the run from the law, but when caught will be charged with rape, murder and armed robbery. Yesterday, Eastern Cape police appealed to the public to help them in their efforts to bring these dangerous men in and, in doing so, play a role in putting them through the justice system. Provincial police spokeswoman Colonel Sibongile Soci said any tips from the public could be useful in tracking down the fugitives.
According to police spokesman Captain Nkosikho Mzuku‚ the accident happened between Komga and East London. Nombembe‚ 31‚ was killed when his Mercedes-Benz collided head on with a truck. An unnamed 32-year-old man believed to be Nombembe’s friend also died in the same accident‚ Mzuku said. He was travelling with Nombembe from the direction of Mthatha towards East London. Mzuku said a case of culpable homicide was being investigated by the Blue Water police. “The cause of the accident is still unknown.
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".
