Man claims 100 million kwanzas from state for seven years of wrongful arrest

Bonifácio Kuenha was unjustly sentenced to 20 years in prison after being judged for the death of Daniel Tchali. After six years of his sentence, the alleged victim appeared alive, but Bonifácio Kuenha was only found innocent after having served seven years of his sentence.


Bonifácio Kuenha was unjustly sentenced for the death of Daniel Tchali. Now unemployed and homeless, he is claiming at least 100 million kwanzas from the state.

In an interview with the newspaper oPaís, the citizen claims he has lost everything, "they have destroyed my life". The citizen also revealed that "the family of the living dead" sold their home while he was in prison "to pay for the death" and the court costs.

"I'm unemployed, I no longer have a home and I depend on the charity of the relatives," he revealed.

Bonifacio has five children who live with his ex-wife - who filed for divorce when he completed three years in prison.

Given the complicated situation, the citizen considers that the compensation would help him to get back on his feet, however, the response takes time: "The court so far tells me nothing. I don't think they will solve the problem in Bié, maybe in Luanda. Just to be aware of the slowness of this court, at the time Daniel Tchali appeared I had only three years in jail, but the case has extended to the point where he was only released after completing seven years".

"Unable to see my children, no wife, no home and no job. I am destroyed and I need to start my life anew", he pointed, adding that for the moment there are no decisions, "a new investigation of the case is being conducted" and for this reason "the court has not yet ruled".
