Government has launched an investigation into circumstances under which Salim Saleh's private aide, Capt. Juma Seiko, demolished a school in Mukono.
On Friday last week, TRI-Star High School in Mukono district was left in rubbles after Capt. Juma Seiko, demolished it, leaving more than 300 students stranded.
The demolition exercise was supervised by the Police, local defence unit personnel and kanyamas.
The State Minister for Lands and Housing, Michael Werikhe, says the investigations stem from reports that Seiko's action was backed by support from some government agencies.
Werikhe says government wants to ascertain whether or not Seiko acted in his private capacity.

Seiko sued the Tri- star high school proprietor, John Kizito, challenging his tenancy on plot 140, in Mukono town.
Through his lawyers, Moses Kimuli, Seiko claimed that the school owner, John Kizito, trespassed on his land in 2001 and constructed a school on it without his permission.
The school was razed shortly after Justine Atukwasa, the Grade One Magistrate, ruled that the occupants of the land were neither customary tenants nor lawful occupants of the land and ordered them to relocate.
