SOL - Sasol Limited - Supplementary information to previous announcement        
Sasol Limited                                                                   
(Incorporated in the Republic of South Africa)                                  
(Registration number 1979/003231/06)                                            
ISIN: ZAE000006896        US8038663006

Supplementary information to previous announcement in respect of referral by    
Competition Commission of polymers industry investigation to Competition        
Further to the SENS announcement made earlier today Sasol wishes to provide the 
following supplementary information relating to Sasol Chemical Industries       
Limited (SCI).                                                                  
Shareholders are advised that SCI houses a number of Sasol`s South African      
chemical businesses such as Sasol Nitro, Sasol Polymers, Sasol Solvents and     
Sasol Wax. In Sasol`s public disclosures we have reported on a business segment 
basis and have not provided the turnover of SCI as a legal entity.              
The turnover of SCI excluding transfers to the Sasol Group for the 2009 fiscal  
year was R22,13 billion.                                                        
In our previous announcement we have indicated that at this time there is no    
reasonable certainty as to whether or not SCI will be found to have contravened 
competition laws as alleged, whether a penalty will be imposed and the quantum  
thereof if imposed. There is also no certainty that SCI is the correct base from
which to calculate a potential administrative penalty.

Disclaimer - Forward-looking statements:                                        
In this document we make certain statements that are not historical facts and   
relate to analyses and other information which are based on forecasts of future 
results and estimates of amounts not yet determinable.  These statements may    
also relate to our future prospects, developments and business strategies.      
Examples of such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to,    
statements regarding exchange rate fluctuations, volume growth, increases in    
market share, total shareholder return and cost reductions. Words such as       
"believe", "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "seek", "will", "plan", "could",   
"may", "endeavour" and "project" and similar expressions are intended to        
identify such forward-looking statements, but are not the exclusive means of    
identifying such statements. By their very nature, forward-looking statements   
involve inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, and there  
are risks that the predictions, forecasts, projections and other forward-looking
statements will not be achieved.  If one or more of these risks materialise, or 
should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ    
materially from those anticipated. You should understand that a number of       
important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the      
plans, objectives, expectations, estimates and intentions expressed in such     
forward-looking statements.                                                     
These factors are discussed more fully in our most recent annual report under   
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 on Form 20-F filed on 9 October 2009 and in 
other filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. The    
list of factors discussed therein is not exhaustive; when relying on forward-   
looking statements to make investment decisions, you should carefully consider  
both these factors and other uncertainties and events. Forward-looking          
statements apply only as of the date on which they are made, and we do not      
undertake any obligation to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of
new information, future events or otherwise.
