Zulu Nation Apologizes to Afrika Bambaataa’s Alleged Victims

Afrikaa Bambaataa

*The Zulu Nation has issued a formal apology to the alleged victims of Afrikaa Bambaataa’s sexual abuse. The group’s previous statements denying the allegations were issued by older leaders who were personal friends of Bambaataa, an official with the organization said. Zulu Nation was founded by Bambaataa to promote art and unity in the hip hop community.

via NY Daily News:

“We extend our deepest and most sincere apologies to the many people who have been hurt by the actions of Afrika Bambaataa and the subsequent poor response of our organization to allegations leveled against him,” said the statement signed by nearly three dozen Zulu Nation leaders representing chapters across the United States and as far away as New Zealand.

The statement said Zulu Nation is committed to seeking justice and healing for Afrika Bambaataa’s alleged victims and will educate its members and communities about sexual abuse.

Charles Tucker Jr., an attorney for Bambaataa, declined to comment to the Daily News. ”I don’t know enough about the motivation behind this letter to make a statement,” Tucker said.

Zulu Nation issued a statement last month denying the allegations and called Ronald Savage, who was the first to publicly accuse Bambaataa of sexual abuse, “mentally challenged.”

“I think the letter is sincere but it’s too little too late,” Savage said. “They should have done this in the beginning instead of disrespecting me and the Daily News.”

A total of four men have accused Bambaataa of sexual abuse, but he has repeatedly denied the allegations.

The group also initially accused the Daily News of working with the government and the NYPD to discredit Zulu Nation.
