MDC A VP Tendai Biti says opposition activist Makomborero Haruzivishe is a national treasure.

Posting on twitter, Biti said Makomborero is quite humble intelligent articulate& brave compatriot.

The prominent activist was charged with kidnapping after he allegedly led the Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) students to storm an Impala Car Rental shop in Harare, locked workers in and left with the keys while demanding the release of their president Takudzwa Ngadziore last year.

“He is not a criminal. Please do the right thing&let him go home”, he said.

Biti accused the regime of harrassing Makomborero throughout his life including multiple expulsions from University.

Ngadziore was severely attacked by suspected state security agents before he was arrested for demonstrating at the Impala Car Rental offices.
