To be young, gifted and black,
Oh what a lovely precious dream
“We all know what it’s like to be told that there is not a place for you to be featured. Yet you are young, gifted and Black. We know what it’s like to be told there’s not a screen for you to be featured on, a stage for you to be featured on. We know what it’s like to be the tail and not the head. We know what it’s like to be beneath and not above. That is what we went to work with every day. Because we knew … that we had something special that we wanted to give the world. That we could be full human beings in the roles that we were playing. That we could create a world that exemplified a world that we wanted to see.”
Chadwick Boseman (1976–2020)

to be honest i don't think some people understand how fucked up it actually is that bucky broke zemo out of jail like ??? y'all saw that on screen and decided to ignore it because what? he looked hot?
wakanda was bucky's home for approximately two years. they protected him from any outside threats who still wanted him dead, cleaned his brain of anything hydra put in it, gave him a new arm that wasn't stained with the mistakes he made while under hydra's control, accompanied him through his healing journey and made him feel welcome. so welcome, in fact, that even bucky himself says how he "found peace in wakanda".
and then what does he do? break zemo out of jail. zemo, the guy who not only killed wakanda's king, but also shuri's father. shuri as in the person who built him the new arm. shuri as in the one who wiped his winter soldier brain. not only her father, but also t'challa's father. t'challa as in the king of wakanda who allowed him into his home and let him stay there for as long as he needed. and this is without even mentioning ayo, who we actually saw help bucky at the begging of the last episode.
so, no. i don't think zemo being "means to an end" justifies breaking him out, specially with everything that action entails and how important it is to the people who were there for bucky at his lowest.
