Tanzania is one of the very few countries in Africa, which successfully defeated the concept of discrimination in all its forms, whether racial, religious, sex, or tribal. This, however, didn’t come like manna from heaven. It was serious work by the founder of this nation, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere. There are still so many African countries, including our very neighbours, who are still haunted by tribalism, religiosity or racism.
For an African court to reach such a decision of majority in annulling presidential election results is quite a novel decision, which was not only anticipated by the legal fraternity and election stakeholders, including the president elect, but also the petitioner himself. All in all, that ruling is a total proof that the Supreme Court of Kenya is fully independent and its Justices are persons of high integrity.
opinionBy Mwassa JingiTanzania is one of many African states, which immediately after independence abolished a multiparty political system that existed in a short period before and after independence. The one party political system, which was practised by many countries in Africa, recorded some social advantages and many negative effects, whose impacts are still experienced in many African countries today after the adoption of multiparty democracy in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
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".
