Radio Phoenix has apologised for airing news that Chief Mpezeni has died.
Last Friday, Radio Phoenix reported on its morning news that the Paramount Chief of the Ngoni had died.
Mpezeni was in South Africa for medical treatment and is expected to return home this Sunday.
The same Friday Mpezeni told the Watchdog that he was doing fine and would return to Zambia prompting Radio Phoenix to issue an apology.
Mpezeni has since accepted the apology from the radio station.
Meanwhile Mpezeni says the death of president Michael Sata has pained him deeply.
