Armed raiders on Friday shot dead two pupils and seriously injured one man during an ambush targeting Marakwet East locals. The two children, both aged 15 years, were learning at Maros primary school. The attack was executed by suspected cattle rustlers at the border of Marakwet East and Pokot South at around 5am. The raiders made away with ten cows and 50 goats and an unknown number of sheep.
West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo has said he will conduct an audit of county staff in a bid to reduce the wage bill. Lonyangapuo, who was Senator, said on Tuesday that the county has a bloated workforce which has ballooned the wage bill. He said Simon Kachapin's administration used a lot of money to pay workers and assigned little to development. “I have had a meeting with all departmental heads and realised the county employed many workers so rationalisation is needed."
West Pokot governor-elect John Lonyangapuo has pledged to eradicate corruption cartels in the county. Lonyangapuo said he will ensure that whoever has looted public funds is prosecuted. He spoke on Wednesday after meeting the county transition committee. "When I assume office, I will ensure county officers who have looted vehicles, office tables, Television sets, chairs and window curtains face the law," he said.
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".
