You can question so many things about Lawrence Mulindwa. But his business acumen should never be one of them. His achievements are plain to see that I will save you the overviews. And I think we can all agree that he did not grow his empire by being lucky. He did that by working his networks. And the latest fruits to bear was last week’s announcement of yet another corporate sponsorship package to his Vipers, this time from DFCU Bank.
As someone who made my first visit to a proper football stadium during the Council of East and Central Africa Football Association (Cecafa) Senior Challenge Cup of 1984, I should be looking forward to yet another edition. It’s a shame though that like me, a lot of people will not bother this year, but, hey, that’s for the hosts Kenya to worry about. So why Kenya as host? It couldn’t have been a random decision. It came after the hosting rights had been hawked around the region in vain.
Last July, we parted company with former national team manager, Micho Sredojević amidst the controversy of unpaid dues and poor communication. It was obvious then, as it is now, that such circumstances wouldn’t endear us to notable future suitors, when the time came. That time is upon us now and we must convince candidates for the national team job, that we can be counted upon to respect and perform on the contracts we enter and generally be good employers.
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".
