    The only way to work out on this political ambiguity!

    Metadata usually hide information that can embarrassingly lead to revelation of secrets resulting in leakage of business deals, hidden agendas and other crucial information, and hence a danger of exposing secrets which can be very costly!

    It is known that (I will not put refs for now) even for reputable companies with server-based metadata removal, 10% of all information (provided they are in electronic form) going out of company server have metadata.

    Metadata can reveal how an electronic file was created. Metadata for example can tell you whether this video was taken continuously from one place or just a combination of parts taken from different places in different times. It provides plenty of other information as well.

    "One of the factors that distinguishes electronic documents from their paper counterparts and contributes to the complexity of electronic document records management is that electronically stored data is accompanied by metadata. Metadata "describes" the underlying data. It may include information such as what language itÂ’s written in; where the data is stored; number of characters, pages and words; what tools were used to create it; when the data was created/modified and by whom." Reference: (E-discovery: What does your metadata reveal? : Municipal Association of SC)

    I'm certain for large percentage, that this video is a forgery. The only way to clear this dilemma is to work it the clever way by extracting the meta information associated with the video file!

    I'm convinced that there is little chance for people (who may also be not intelligent enough) who created this video to have ever thought of the meta info hidden in the file. And because the video is posted on internet, that means they cannot take it all back in order to remove metadata. Metadata can be extracted by just executing a small piece of code in the command prompt.

    Yes, information should be submitted to the court as an evidence or let some geek do it before the public in the court so that everyone can witness!

    Alternatively: Extract images from a video, then get EXIF (exchangeable image file) to analyze.

    Ninafurahi sana ninapoona mwelekeo wa kupata ukweli wa jambo hili, wataalamu wa IT wa uchochoroni wasijua kwamba kuna "Metadata Information" ndipo watakapoumbuka!

    Hivi kweli kuna mtu anadhani serikali ya Tanzania ikitaka kujua mtu aliyeiweka ile video YouTube itashindwa?

    Kuna watu wako so illiterate na kompyuta wanadhani kuwa uki-uplaod video Youtube na ID feki basi huwezi kuwa tracked down.

    Everything that people do on the Internet, including on YouTube, can be tracked down so easily. I mean everything.

    Sioni ugumu wowote wa kum-track aliyeweka ile video.

    Na kwa vile ile video inaongelea conspiracy to kill someone na kwa vile terms na conditions za YouTube zinakataza ku-upload video za aina hiyo, Google watakuwa tayari ku-cooperate na Tanzania kumpata aliyeiweka ile video ya conspiracy to commit a deadly crime.

    a great lesson for political parties in tanzania not just to put much emphasis to campaigning and lobbying but to have experrts on the rising breach of online technology. The saga will cost chadema if efforts are not put in place to prove the fraudulent film, its in the best interest for the party to seek independent experts to varify the short film if it was genuine.

    on the serious note it is high time now that big wigs running political parties and other organisations to have a specific projects and team of experts to fight off siber smear campaigns like the one being upoloaded few weeks ago.

    it will be absolutly astonishing if the short film would be found fake without implicating some rising stars of the rulling ccm who had mentioned in public that they have seen the same episode way back and not only that they didnt report it to the authorities but also to say that they wernt involved in the making of the horrific smear campaign against a fellow tanzanian.

    This is not the politics that ordinary people want to see in the future and it is important for the police authority to make sure they get to the bottom of it, and punish accordingly whoever is involved..
