Tullow Oil apologizes to Ugandan President over false allegations

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.
