Congolese fear Heritage mercenary connection

The Monitor of Kampala has a piece today on the border tensions between Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo that points up once again the links between Heritage Oil and private armies:

Kinshasa remains suspicious of Kampala, while according to a UN
official who spoke to Sunday Monitor on condition of anonymity, the DR
Congo is also wary of Heritage Oil Corp, one of the companies
prospecting for oil in Albertine Basin.

Sources familiar with this matter say Kinshasa is
unhappy about the relationship Heritage might be enjoying with
Executive Outcomes (EO) – a mercenary outfit of ex-South Africa army
commandos. They also see EO’s probable links with President Museveni’s
brother, Gen. Salim Saleh, through his Saracen Guards company, as being
potentially problematic. (
