BY ALLAN SECCOMBE AND CHARLOTTE 

Sasol, the coal-to-liquid fuel maker, unveiled a fresh R21bn empowerment scheme for its South African assets, after the first scheme was under water as it approached the end of its vesting period. In an enormously complicated transaction, Sasol is terminating its Inzalo empowerment scheme and replacing it with the Khanyisa transaction, which will result in at least 25% black ownership of Sasol’s wholly owned subsidiary, Sasol South Africa, for 10 years from 2018.
