By Juma Nsubuga

A group of MPs led by the legal and parliamentary affairs committee chairperson, Steven Tashobya heads to London this evening to witness the proceedings of a case between the Ugandan government and Heritage Oil.

Western Uganda Youth MP, Gerald Karuhanga who is part of the group says ,they will watch the case closely to ensure that there is no connivance between the lawyers representing Uganda and the oil company.

In May last year Heritage oil company initiated an arbitration against the Ugandan government for the release of, among other things, the $405million held by Uganda Revenue Authority following the sale of its interests in Blocks 1 and 3A in Uganda to Tullow oil company.

Karunga added that it is a good case Uganda can win if the lawyers ably represent the country.

Karuhanga has been known as an anti corruption crusader since he tabled documents before parliament implicating senior cabinet ministers in oil bribery.
