THE HISTORY OF MHLUME SUGAR ESTATE

In 1941, Mssrs Bob Hersov and ‘Slip’ Menell from Anglo Vaal in Johannesburg obtained a mining concession of 110,000 acres (44,514ha). It was a large area of virgin Bushveld, lying between the Komati and the Umbuluzi Rivers in the north eastern corner of Swaziland. It was named ‘Swaziland Ranches’. Trials and experiments conducted over several years, showed that dry-land farming was an absolute no-no in the Lowveld, due to the heat and erratic rainfall.

 

It became apparent that, in order to fully realise the full agricultural potential of Swaziland Ranches, an extensive irrigation scheme would have to be built, starting from a weir 32km up the Komati River. Anglo Vaal accordingly invited the Colonial Development Corporation to join them in partnership. Anglo Vaal concluded the agreement with CDC in mid-1950 and Swaziland Ranches was taken over by CDC who named the project ‘Swaziland Irrigation Scheme’.

 

That saw the birth of IYSIS, Mhlume, Tambankulu and Umbuluzi Estates. Mhlume Sugar Estate and factory was established in 1957. CDC took control in 1965 and in 1977 a 50% stake was sold to Tibiyo TakaNgwane.

 

Royal Swazi Sugar Corporation started in 1980 and the majority was owned by Tibiyo, with Tate and Lyle as managers and CDC as minority shareholder.

 

                    

Lubombo Catering Services officially took over management of Mhlume Country Club in October 2009. With our ultimate goal of restoring Mhlume Country Club to its former glory, we started by upgrading the B&B accommodation en-suite rooms, toilets, bar, gardens and the restaurant was completely refurbished.

 

We also appointed new staff for the club. Our mission is to provide a recreation club for visiting sportsmen, family holiday makers, business representatives and travellers en-route to Mozambique who need overnight accommodation before reaching the border post of Lomahasha / Namaacha

 

Visit us here at Mhlume Country Club and we can assure you of complete rest and relaxation.
