Mhluzi is a township just west of the large farming and industrial town Middelburg, Mpumalanga in the South African province of Mpumalanga.


Background and History

The Town Councils of Middelburg and Mhluzi, as well as the Management Committees for Eastdene (Indian area) and Nasaret (Coloured area according to apartheid laws) amalgamated during 1994 to form the Transitional Local Council for Middelburg.

Middelburg was the first town in Mpumalanga to amalgamate in terms of the Local Government Transition Act, and the proclamation to establish the new TLC appeared in the Mpumalanga Provincial Gazette, No 2/1994 on 16 November 1994.
