Thursday was a gloomy day, weather-wise, in Harare. It actually rained quite a bit during the day. The grey clouds frowned menacingly over Harare, a city fondly known as Sunshine City. But there was no sunshine throughout Thursday, and in a political, social and economic sense, the sun has hardly shone over this city, this country and these long-suffering members of the ‘big house of stone’ (Dzimbabwe) in nearly two decades.

CLEARING OUT; So someone at ANC HQ decided it was finally time to clean up...dumped these 2016 election flyers with then Party President Jacob Zuma’s face, in a heap of rubbish just outside Luthuli House. https://t.co/m6nEzH3OeL
Magashule; ‘We’ve not arrived at any decision that Zuma must go or Zuma must not go. We are just saying there is this engagement and it’s ongoing. Give us the space to deal with our organisational matters’ #ANCNEC
Magashule (on free education for the poor); ‘The funding model - we’ve agreed that in the five years we will be phasing in gradually the issue of funding. It will happen because it’s a resolution of government. We’re leaving modalities to government’ #ANCNEC
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".
