This is in retaliation to the xenophobic violence which has spread in Kwa-Zulu Natal to some areas of down town Johannesburg. Over sixty people have died and more maimed and assaulted in the attacks which have gained momentum in the past two weeks.
Sasol spokesperson, Alex Anderson said previously that work had been stopped at their natural gas central processing facility in Temane‚ Inhambane.
"We are taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of all personnel and will continue to facilitate engagement with all parties involved and the relevant authorities to work towards an amicable solution‚" Anderson said.
