The Company was advised on 17 September 2004, that the Trustee of the SABMiller
Employees' Benefit Trust ('the EBT') had that day completed the purchase in the
market of 400 000 SABMiller plc ordinary shares at an average price per share of
GBP 7.085357. This purchase was made to provide the EBT with greater capacity to
meet potential future conditional obligations in respect of restricted shares
conditionally awarded under the Company's Performance Share Award Scheme and its
Sub Schemes and also to satisfy, upon exercise, stock appreciation rights
awarded under the Company's International Employee Stock Appreciation Rights
Scheme.  Pursuant to this purchase the EBT's shareholding in unvested shares
amounts to 3,086,459 ordinary shares.
