The Times of Zambia is a national daily newspaper published in Zambia. It was founded in 1944 as a twice-weekly newspaper aimed towards a European readership, owned first by Roy Welensky and then by the South African newspaper chain Argus. Under the ownership of Lonhro, it was renamed the Times of Zambia on 1 July, 1965. Criticism of the government under the editorship of Dunston Kamana in the early 1970s led to the government intervening to appoint its own editor, Vernon Mwaanga, in 1972. United National Independence Party (UNIP), Zambia’s former ruling party, took the newspaper over in 1975. The Times of Zambia is now owned by the Zambian Government. The newspaper recently went online in English and the site is currently under development. It publishes the Sunday Times of Zambia. The newspaper has its headquarters in Zambia’s second largest city Ndola.
