Welcome to Matekane Group Of Companies, a World of Innovation!
Since the inception of this company, we have seen growth and development both in our company and our country. We have impacted positively on the economy, infrastructure and development of Lesotho through construction, plant hire, property development and mining.
Together with our government, we have ensured the improvement of the lives of Basotho, youth, communities and professionals. Our main aim is to move Lesotho into a category of developed country from a developing country. This can be achieved by holding hands and working towards a financially sustainable country.
Our company is proud of all projects we have completed and those that are currently under construction. In 2009, we ventured into aviation and are doing very well. We provide international charter services under MGC Aviation. We also have MGC Express, under which we operate scheduled international flights with our two CRJ’s. We intend on expanding this division as the company grows.
MGC-RST Mozambique has proven to be one of the best business decisions MGC has taken. We are operating a coal mine in Mozambique and are looking forward to more ventures. In Lesotho, we are also providing heavy duty equipment for a diamond mine, providing it with latest and best machinery for almost 10 years.
Matekane Property is one of the companies under MGC that was registered in 2009 and we have since developed an estate, MGC headquarters and are currently erecting a hotel. Matekane Property also has projects that will soon start. Our buildings are modern, elegant and customised to the clients’ preferences and needs.
We give back to all communities we operate in and our Corporate Social Responsibility has changed hundreds of lives in the country. We mainly sponsor education, sports, community initiatives and health programs. We invest in the knowledge of our youth as they will carry the country into its dream. MGC is a family that prides itself in unity and strong leadership.
Welcome to MGC. God Bless!
Sam Matekane, MGC Chairman
Established in 1986 as a small, sole proprietor in transport with one truck, today, we house exceptional teams in construction, mining, aviation, roads construction and property development.
Matekane Transport and Plant Hire
Matekane Transport and Plant Hire (Pty) Ltd is the founding subsidiary of the Matekane Group of Companies, MGC, which started operations in 1986 as a small business. Since then it has grown and ventured into construction and is one of the fastest growing companies in Lesotho. Matekane Transport and Plant Hire specialises in road construction, rehabilitation and associated infrastructural development that includes bridges, culverts, water treatment plants and water reticulation.
Our project managers start from no structure to blacktop in design, contracting, implementation, supervision and maintenance of roads to deliver outstanding projects on time.
Matekane Mining has navigated the Maluti Mountains to deliver the best plant for opencast mining at 3 200 m above sea level, and we will continue to deploy project managers that ensure our continued excellence anywhere in the world. Open pit mines are operated when deposits of minerals are found near the surface or along kimberlite pipes. MGC has expanded its mining division to Mozambique in partnership with an experienced Indian company, RST Mining and Logistics.
Inspired by Lesotho’s terrain that presents endless scenic possibilities, Matekane Aviation awaits the discerning luxury traveler, the up-to-the-minute business executive, the curious farmer, the unexpected emergency evacuation, and the free-spirited photo and videographer, to offer our exclusive-to you service. Matekane Aviation, the only privately owned airline in the Mountain Kingdom, was established in 2009, launching the company’s professional and charter services to the highlands of Lesotho. Lesotho entrepreneur and Group Chairman of MGC, Sam Matekane, says his vision is ‘to make MGC an ambassador of Lesotho’s excellence and make the country a force to be reckoned with internationally’.
If our contribution can advance our market one more step in theease-of-doing-business indices, our drive to erect more structures will continue to be fuelled. The project, which commenced in October 2010, has created more than 250 jobs and employed mainly dynamic Basotho companies during construction. The initial intention was to create a home for all the subsidiaries of the Group under one roof. However, the idea was further improved to erect a structure that would not only accommodate MGC staff but also contribute to answering the need for commercial space in Maseru, and diversify the Group’s portfolio of assets and new revenue streams. Matekane Property has more developments underway and is currently erecting the Mpilo Boutique Hotel.
