Tullow Oil apologizes to Ugandan President over false allegations

  • SOURCE: | Editor
  • Tullow Oil plc has written to Ugandan President, Yoweri MUseveni, expressing regret over the “entirely false allegations” that it considered paying him US$50m dollars to meet his short term needs and demands.

    In his letter to the President, Tullow’s Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Aidan Heavey, said that the company has become a victim of “groundless mudslinging” as a result of its success.

    Heavey’s letter was in reply to a letter written to him this week, by President Museveni’s lawyers asking him to explain reports that the company considered paying the President the $50 million dollars.

    Museveni gave the company three days to explain the damaging media reports.
