Minor disagreements between former president Nelson Mandela's doctors, staff and his family members are laid bare in the book detailing his health journey. The book, which hit stores yesterday, is written by his doctor Vejay Ramlakan. The book, titled Mandela's Last Years, details how his finances had to be discussed as his health was deteriorating. Ramlakan wrote he chose to write to President Jacob Zuma about Mandela's personal matters.
And, unlike Dlamini-Zuma and Mbete, Sisulu sounds independent and has spoken out against the ills that are destroying the ANC. She has spoken against corruption, and has also said ministers linked to the Gupta family should be fired. She also previously said the ANC needs to renew itself. This is the truth that Dlamini-Zuma and Mbete have never spoken to. The three women are members of the women's league, which was the first structure of the ANC to endorse Dlamini-Zuma.
I am asking because senior ANC leader Derek Hanekom was shouted down at the ANC national policy conference for holding a different view. He attended discussions on economic transformation where the definition of "white monopoly capital" as well as questions about SA's land issue were discussed, and the debate got heated. President Jacob Zuma and Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa were in the same discussions, flooded by KwaZulu-Natal delegates and ANCYL members.
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".
