The former owned and published the daily “Times of Zambia” and the “Sunday Times”’ while the latter was responsible for Newspaper printing and distribution. The Government of Zambia working through the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning bought the two (Companies from Lonrho in 1989, and were managed by the National Media Corporation (NAMECO). Merger of the two (2) companies into Times Printpak Zambia Limited took place in March 1993 through a Government decision.
