In accordance with paragraph 3.59 of the JSE Limited Listings Requirements, shareholders
are hereby advised of the following changes, which will become effective after the Company’s
annual general meeting on 18 November 2021 (“2021 AGM”), subject to shareholder’s


Mrs IN (Ipeleng) Mkhari, who has served as a director on the Board for a period of 17 years,
has advised the Company that in order to focus on her other business interests, she will not
make herself available for re-election at the 2021 AGM. She will accordingly retire by rotation
and resign as a director from the Board and as a member of the nomination committee
(“Nom Com”), the human capital and remuneration committee (“Rem Com”) and the social
and ethics committee (“S&E Com”) with effect from 18 November 2021.

The Board wishes to express its sincere gratitude to Mrs Mkhari who has served with
distinction and greatly contributed to the group’s growth since her appointment in 2004.

The Nom Com has reviewed the suitability of the composition of the KAP board of directors
(“Board”) against the Board’s forward-looking succession plan, and recommended that Mr
SP (Sibusiso Penwell) Lunga, the Company’s Executive of Human Capital, be appointed as
an executive director on the Board at the AGM on 18 November 2021.

Penwell is well qualified with BJuris, LLB, MBA, MSc (HR) degrees obtained from the
University of South Africa and the Herriot-Watt University amongst others. He joined KAP in
April 2012 as the industrial relations manager, where he was responsible for the management
of labour relations and labour law matters. In June 2016, he was appointed as the group’s
stakeholder relations executive and became a member of the executive committee, focusing
primarily on industrial relations matters, government relations and community interactions
across the group’s operating areas. He has extensive experience in human capital and
stakeholder relations and has represented the group in various industry structures. Penwell
has been attending Board meetings as an invitee for the past year as part of a planned
development and succession process and has proven himself competent to operate at this

The Board approved this appointment yesterday and looks forward to the value that Penwell
will bring to its deliberations.

Following the envisaged changes mentioned above, there will be no vacancy on the Board.


In addition, the following Board committee and director role changes have been approved by
the Board for implementation following the conclusion of the 2021 AGM:

    as the chair of the Board and the Nom Com. Mr Quarmby will not be reappointed to the

    lead independent non-executive director. The deputy chair position on the Board will fall
    away. Mr Grové will retain his seats on the investment committee (“Invest Com”) and on
    the Rem Com.
•   Mrs V (Viv) McMenamin will become a member of the Rem Com, in addition to her
    membership of the S&E Com.
•   In addition to her seats on the A&R Com and the S&E Com, Mrs TC Esau-Isaacs will
    become a member of the Invest Com.
