REUTERS/Abubaker LubowaKAMPALA, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Ugandan prosecutors on Tuesday charged two lawmakers allied to opposition leader Bobi Wine with the murder of three people, following a spate of unsolved killings that have stoked widespread public alarm. The motive, police said, citing suspects, was to attack elderly residents who had voted for Museveni. Information minister Chris Baryomunsi last month told local television that politicians were behind the killings, but did not name them. "This is just a plan they hatched to implicate the opposition ... they know the real killers," Ssenyonyi said. Museveni, who has ruled Uganda since 1986, was ultimately declared winner of the election, although Wine rejected the results as fraudulent.

REUTERS/Abubaker LubowaA Ugandan military court on Monday released on bail 18 supporters of singer-turned-opposition leader Bobi Wine detained since the start of the year on charges lawyers and government critics say are politically motivated. "They were granted bail, so for now they have some temporary freedom," their lawyer, George Musisi, told Reuters. Wine rejected the results, alleging ballot stuffing, intimidation of his supporters and falsification of ballot tallies. Since last year security forces have detained hundreds of Wine's supporters for interrogations, according to rights activists, the government and opposition officials. "These young people spent six months in jail over charges that were simply punishment for supporting the opposition," Musisi said.

Uganda's electoral commission said Saturday that longtime President Yoweri Museveni has won a sixth five-year term, while top opposition challenger Bobi Wine alleges rigging and officials struggle to explain how polling results were compiled amid an internet blackout. The self-described "ghetto president" had strong support in urban centers where frustration with unemployment and corruption is high. The electoral commission said Museveni received 58% of ballots and Wine 34%, and voter turnout was 52%. Wine on Friday said he has video evidence of vote-rigging and "every legal option is on the table" to challenge the official election results, including peaceful protests. Candidates can challenge election results at the Supreme Court.
