Sasol President and CEO to transition into an advisory role in
July 2016

Sasol today announced that its President and CEO, David
Constable, has decided not to extend his contract of employment
with the Company, which expires on 31 May 2016, for a further
term beyond 30 June 2016, being the end of the Company?s next
financial year.

With the board?s support, Mr Constable initiated an extensive
business performance enhancement programme, and drove the
Company?s growth ambitions in Southern Africa and North
America. To support Sasol?s mega-projects, the board has agreed
that a special advisory services agreement be entered into with
Mr Constable for the 2017 financial year.

"When David was appointed in 2011, he prioritised a reduction
in organisational complexity and drove an ambitious growth
programme. Coupled with global socio-economic challenges, we
required a leader with a long-term view to ensure the Company?s
sustained competitive advantage," said Dr Mandla Gantsho,
Sasol?s Chairman.

Dr Gantsho added: ?The board has a detailed succession plan and
structured process in place for the position of the President
and CEO of the Company. With twelve months at our disposal, I?m
confident that the groundwork we initiated some time ago will
enable the board to identify and appoint an accomplished leader
who is best-suited to take Sasol to the next level. Further
announcements in this regard will follow in the new financial

?Looking back, I could never have imagined that my time at
Sasol would pass so quickly and be filled with so many exciting
milestones. It has been an extraordinary experience working
with a supportive board, a dedicated management team, and
committed colleagues and partners. I am very proud of the
progress we have made together towards our goal of ensuring
Sasol?s long-term sustainability and success. As I close out
the final twelve months of my tenure, I look forward to driving
the Company?s 2016 financial year priorities, as we embed the
group-wide change programme we embarked upon four years ago,?
said Mr Constable.
