On December 9, 2017, Hatibu Hussein Kifunza, a Tanzanian man, was released from prison after being wrongfully imprisoned for 20 years.

Hussein was a well-to-do guy before his life went south; he had six residences in the city, all of which he rented out, and he lived in one of them.

The arrest, conviction, and punishment of Hussein
When speaking with Afrimax, the now physically handicapped man explained that it all began when he rented one of his units to a particular renter.

One day, soldiers called at the said house, got the tenant and requested to see the landlord. Sharing his story in his local dialect, Hussein who had his education up to primary 7 said he rushed to see the soldiers and discovered that the said tenant was accused of committing a crime.

According to the soldiers, his tenant robbed and murdered someone. The force men arrested the landlord and accused him of aiding and abetting a known criminal.

From the arrest, he, the accused tenant and 6 others were charged to court and given capital punishment as their final sentences. Hussein couldn't believe his eyes as he was innocent.

Hussein was favoured by two presidents

Hussein said as a death row inmate, he was taken to a holding facility in Ukonga in Ilala District of the Dar es Salaam Region of Tanzania before being moved to another location.

A successive president then gave him freedom after 20 years as a death row inmate. Hussein said he almost lost his mind owing to his ordeal as a death row inmate. Upon his release, he got home to discover all his 6 houses have been sold off by his brother at lower prices and without his consent.

For fear of having anything to do with prison, Hussien said he decided not to take his brother to court and now lives with his mum. He however suffers from a leaking bladder and needs aid to get treatment.
