Opposition leaders Nelson Chamisa and Tendai Biti have defended the late Murisi Zwizwai, saying an apology is owed to him for criticism he faced after being appointed to the senate by controversial figure Sengezo Tshabangu.

Speaking at Zwizwai’s funeral, Biti acknowledged the ingratitude and lack of empathy shown to Zwizwai, while Chamisa emphasized Zwizwai’s positive contributions to the opposition, urging people to focus on his legacy rather than his senate appointment.
