Schoemansdal forms part of the Nkomazi Local Municipality which is located in the eastern part of the Ehlanzeni District Municipality of the Mpumalanga Province. The municipality is strategically placed with Swaziland to the south and Mozambique to the east. It is linked with Swaziland by two provincial roads and with Mozambique by a railway line and the main national road (N4), which forms the Maputo Corridor.
The Moolman Group is planning on expanding and re – position the newly acquired existing Matsamo Plaza shopping centre in Schoemansdal into Matsamo Mall, which will measure approximately 20 000 m ² on completion.
There is a currently a huge undersupply of retail facilities in Schoemansdal, with the existing Matsamo Plaza, measuring only 7,600 m², the only formal retail facility in the whole of Schoemansdal which has more than 26 000 households. This presents a great opportunity to expand the existing centre to strengthen the already vibrant node and cater for the growing demand. The expansion will occur on some 8 ha of land adjoining the shopping centre and on which a long-term lease agreement with national government has been concluded.
