In 2016, Hip Hop Pioneer Afrika Bambaataa was accused by now-New York city politician Ronald Savage of forcing Savage to perform oral sex beginning at age 13.
More and more alleged victims of Bambaataa came forward after that, with some implicating other Zulu Nation members in an underage sex ring.
In early August "John Doe" sued Bambaataa and Zulu Nation under the Child Victims Act (CVA), which granted victims of childhood sexual assault a one-year window to file suit, regardless of how long ago the assault took place. The deadline to file was August 14.
“The CVA opened a historic one-year onetime window for victims and survivors of childhood sexual abuse in the State of New York to pursue lapsed claims. Prior to the passage of the CVA, each Plaintiff's claims were time barred the day they turned 22 years old.”
According to the lawsuit, Bambaataa himself freely masturbated in front of the 12-year-old boy and continued his sexual assault by committing full rape by sodomy on the minor child. The suit also alleges that while parading himself as a pillar in the community and the leader of a righteous organization, Bambaataa’s degradation and humiliation of this young boy knew no bounds.
The suit alleges Bambaataa had no regard for human life because he transported and supplied this young boy to other deviant, perverted males for cash. According to the Department of Justice, this is the definition of Child Sex Trafficking.
The lawsuit says Bambaataa even took John Doe to other locations where he watched other adult men sodomize this child for money.
In the past, Bambaataa has denied the numerous allegations against him but he hasn't commented on these latest.
