The price of the daily  edition of  The Nation newspaper is being raised to K600  from K450 as well as that of Nation on Sunday by the same amount, while the Saturday issue of Weekend Nation  will go up to K70,  increasing from K500.

NPL said in a statement published on Thursday that it is increasing the cover price “to incorporate VAT and increasing production costs.”

The latest price rise is set to be effective Thursday, December 8, 2016.

NPL promises “better service” in 2017 while appreciating readers support over the years.

A media expert told Nyasa Times that it  is an increasingly challenging market for all newspapers and by raising the cover price the publication should be able to keep investing in their  journalism in  print and digital products.

    Nation Pubs Ltd: from K450 to K600 (33%) in this economic climate? That’s too much…. A newspaper is just an option for most Malawians. We would rather listen to the radio or watch TV when Escom has treated us right. Moreover you had just raised Weekend Nation from K500 to K600 barely 3 months ago, now u r hiking it to K700? You better make sense to the advertisers otherwise the circulation is definitely going to dip significantly up till the economy picks up.

    BNL – publishers of Daily Times, Sunday Times and Malawi News – please do not follow suit lest we suspect you guys are a cartel!

    Ooooh okay we are nyasaz NOTHING we can do about it

  4. I used to buy two news papers everyday because I like reading. The new price for the two giant newspapers will force me to buy one paper everyday. I will only buy the one that has attracted me. I cannot help it but just to do that.
