Uganda traders have gone slow on importing goods via Mombasa port due to election-related uncertainty in Kenya, reports show. Reuters news agency on Tuesday reported Uganda shilling was unchanged as the Kenya poll led some importers to assume a wait-and-see stance, limiting demand for the dollar. The reduced dollar demand suggest the traders have gone easy on importing goods, which enters Uganda through the Mombasa port.
Striking nurses have rejected the governors’ offer of pay for days they have not been at work, vowing not to return to work until their collective bargaining agreement (CBA) is signed and registered in court. The Kenya National Union of Nurses (KNUN) secretary general Mr Maurice Opetu told the Business Daily that they were not ready to go back to work for anything else other than the CBA. Mr Opetu said a meeting that was convened on Thursday by the Council of Governors did not have a clear agenda.
A month-long assessment by the Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) shows that only one in 10 food transporters is likely to suspend operations during the polls. By comparison, a high proportion of non-food items transporters are unlikely to operate between Tuesday and the time the final election results will be announced, shows the report dubbed KAM Manufacturing Barometer. The survey shows that only 11 per cent of food and beverage makers have expressed fear over next week’s elections.
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".
