This is what President Jacob Zuma told ANC delegates when he opened the party conference at Nasrec in Johannesburg on Saturday, in his last speech as ANC president. Although he claimed not to bear grudges, his speech said the opposite. He is not a happy man. He attacked everyone who differed with him, including Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa. He touched on the deaths of mineworkers during the Lonmin strike at Marikana in 2012.
ANC veteran Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is now convinced EFF leader Julius Malema will never return to the ANC. She said she had been telling her colleagues (ANC leaders) that one day Malema would return to the ANC but the work he had done to build his party gave her a clear picture of Malema's plans. "This youth here will be leadership of South Africa," Madikizela-Mandela told the people of Orange Farm in the Vaal on Sunday during the graduation celebration of EFF spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi.
But this time no one is buying it. Last week a key ally of Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa went public about a conspiracy Zuma has cooked up about him. James Motlatsi, one of the founding members of the National Union of Mineworkers who worked with the deputy president in the 1980s, demanded that either Zuma produce evidence that Ramaphosa is a CIA spy or pronounce that he is an ANC member in good standing and that there is thus no reason for Ramaphosa not to be president of the ANC.
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".
