Prominent Dimbaza businessman and EFF leader Aubrey Ntusi is embroiled in a murder investigation following the killing of a schoolboy employee. The 25-year-old Grade 10 pupil succumbed to injuries at Cecilia Makiwane hospital on Wednesday following 20 days in ICU after he was allegedly tortured at Ntusi’s business premises on December 29. Ntusi is the chairman of the EFF in the Dimbaza region and a member of the area’s community policing forum. He is also organiser of the Dimbaza business forum.
A malfunctioning water pipe at Mzonyana Water Treatment Works left large parts of Mdantsane NU1 without water twice this week, spurring Buffalo City Metro workers to launch a major repair operation. Households and government institutions offering crucial services were affected by the outages. The Mdantsane Magistrate’s Court, the NU1 police station and more than 10 schools experienced water interruptions this week.
A dangerous criminal who was with three others when they pulled off a fantastical escape from Mdantsane prison did the dumbest thing. He went straight home. Sandile Vena, 22, from King William’s Town, was brought down at Midenge village in Peelton with little fuss by a special task force of the Correctional Services Department at 3pm yesterday. Villagers easily spotted him and were quick to tip off the prison.
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".
