Tito Chingunji served as the foreign secretary of Angola's UNITA rebel movement in the 1980s and early 1990s. In the mid-1980s, he was UNITA's representative in Washington, D.C.

Chingunji was murdered in Angola in 1991 under circumstances still not fully understood. Some blamed his murder on UNITA leader Jonas Savimbi, who purportedly viewed Chingunji as a political threat. Savimbi, however, suggested his killing was more likely the work of UNITA dissidents or the Central Intelligence Agency, which, Savimbi argued, had supported Chingunji in an effort to overthrow him.[1]
