Cape Town – Former Zimbabwean prime minister and opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has taken a swipe at President Robert Mugabe, saying the veteran leader “is losing it” and that the people of Zimbabwe must pray for him, a report says.

According to Daily News, Tsvangirai made the remarks in response to Mugabe’s renewed attacks against him after the country’s leader said Tsvangirai would never be buried at the National Heroes Acre, because he was a "sell-out".

Mugabe made the utterances during the burial of one of his aides on Sunday at the national shrine, the report said.

Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change has often complained about conferment of hero status as they say Mugabe’s party has converted the national shrine into a Zanu-PF shrine.

Mugabe shared power with Tsvangirai for four years in a shaky coalition government which ended after the 31 July elections which were won by Zanu-PF.

The two have not met since the end of the unity government.
