The party's provincial chairs including Supra Mahumapelo, Paul Mashatile and Ace Magashule made a public appearance together in Mpumalanga on Saturday. They were invited by the provincial chairman David Mabuza to address ANC members. They spoke about unity as the party has less than three months until its elective conference. Mabuza is trying to be seen as a unifier leading up to the conference, which has about seven presidential candidates.
The drama that took place in Sandton, Johannesburg, last week where drivers torched cars, could have been prevented if police were serious about stopping the war between the rival businesses. What happened endangered the lives of warring drivers as well as those of innocent people. This shows that the capture of the police and other criminal justice services is real and, more importantly, it impacts on the lives of ordinary black working class people.
This is according to a wide-range of sources canvassed by Sowetan on the reason for Dlamini-Zuma's entry into parliament. The former health, foreign affairs and home affairs minister is set to be sworn in as MP soon, and will later be appointed a minister. Another factor for the move to cabinet is to provide security for her. Since her return from the African Union, Dlamini- Zuma has been unemployed, relying on her supporters to fund her campaign.
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".
