Competition law compliance review                                               
The following statement was made by the Company at the annual general meeting:  
During the course of the past year the Company has made several announcements   
with respect to competition law matters including the review of Sasol and its   
subsidiaries` ("the Sasol Group") competition law compliance.                   
The board of directors of Sasol ("the Board") regrets instances of collusion    
that occurred in the Sasol Wax GmbH and Sasol Nitro businesses and endorses     
executive management`s unequivocal apology to all stakeholders.  Legal          
compliance in general and competition law compliance specifically remain a      
priority focus area of Sasol`s executive management and the Board.              
Sasol announced on 19 January 2009 that Sasol`s executive management team had,  
in July 2008, launched a comprehensive competition law compliance review of all 
Sasol business units.  It was further announced that the Board, on              
recommendation of Sasol`s executive management, was also launching its own      
independent competition law compliance review ("Board Review").                 
The Board Review has now been completed and the Board has mandated executive    
group management to further enhance Sasol`s competition law compliance processes
and systems. The Board supports the remedial steps being taken and, further,    
believes that the implementation of these measures will augment the competition 
law compliance processes of the Sasol Group.                                    
There are matters that remain subject to investigation. As previously announced 
the South African Competition Commission has initiated investigations in respect
of some of the industries in which Sasol participates.  As and when appropriate,
management will make further announcements in respect of material matters.
