Mnguni‚ a businessman‚ was involved in the school-food nutrition programme in the area‚ and it appears that he was attacked while on his way to make a delivery to one the local schools. “He is the former ANC branch chairperson in Ward 7. The ANC is horrified at losing such a young comrade. The passing of Comrade Mnguni will leave a void in the ranks of the ANC‚ the alliance and the mass democratic movement in general‚ that will not be easy to fill‚” said Zuma.
An Vleader in KwaZulu-Natal who had been elected as a delegate to the party’s national elective conference in December, was gunned down in Nkanyezini‚ Camperdown‚ near Pietermaritzburg on Monday morning. The ANC in the Moses Mabhida region identified the man as Lungisani Mnguni. Spokesperson for Cyril Ramaphosa’s campaign Sithembiso Mshengu said Mnguni was recently elected as a delegate to the December conference‚ and that his branch had nominated Ramaphosa as their presidential candidate.
Presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma is feeling bullish ahead of the ANC’s elective conference next month. Speaking towards the end of an exclusive interview with ANN7’s StraightTalk anchor Sifiso Mahlangu‚ which aired on Saturday afternoon‚ the presidential frontrunner said she was hopeful that she would clinch the ANC's top post next month - but threw in a caveat that it was the party's branches that must decide. “Lastly‚ Mama‚ how is your campaign going?” Mahlangu asked.
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".
