D.A. again does not produce test results and is threatened with Contempt of Court

We spoke with Zulu after the Court Hearing of October 2nd, and he said: “We did not get the ruling that we wanted yesterday, but the Judge was angry with the D.A’s delay in the case.”

The Judge gave the D.A. within 30 days to produce the test of the finger- prints that were taken from the crime-scene, or he will be held in Contempt of Court & fined.

So now we are waiting for the District Attorney to finish the work that should have been done so many years ago, which is: work with the court to make Justice happen.

Meanwhile: Please send Zulu a POSTCARD (not a greeting card, they are no longer allowed in) for his upcoming Birthday on October 14th!

Pack the Courtroom Oct 2nd!

We thought Friday 20th of September there would be another Courthearing, the same as was ordered in April to take place on July 22nd, which was postponed. Please check here for the first announcement.

But it is now October 2nd, at 9:30 AM!

Free Zulu!

Let’s Show Love to Zulu as Justice is again being delayed!

From the Free Zulu European Campaign Chairperson:

Once again justice is being delayed for our Brother Zulu Whitmore, who had an evidentiary hearing coming up on July, 22, 2019, when the State was supposed to have everything tested by that date, because it was agreed to in open court that there would not be anymore extension in this case.

However Judge Erwin in the 19th judicial district court granted the State another 60-day extension without Zulu’s lawyers being present in court.

A statement from his legal team says, this is not over by a long shot, and they ask that all of Zulu’s supporters show him some love at yet another delay.

Myself and the Free Zulu European Campaign say: show our brother some love with letters of support.

Zulu is waiting patiently

We wanted to update you on Zulu’s whereabouts.

In the beginning fo February, Zulu was moved to another building within the Louisiana State Pen, in Angola, LA. He is now in the Main Prison compound, Cypress#3 dormitory.

This is where the largest number of modern day slaves are housed: around 3,500 or more. Zulu was last housed in this area in 1985, when it had killings nearly every week, and stabbing every day, but not so much now. He also said there are a lot of kids down here who just don’t know.

What we learned is that the old solitary confinement buildings are being closed down at the moment, as they were becoming very old.

For the rest, Zulu is patiently waiting to hear from the court, and he is waiting to hear when he will come up for parole, as in Louisiana those prisoners who have been incarcerated the longest, from the 1970s, will be called up for parole! The order in which they are called up is by their number.

Here are some pictures of a visit by Zulu’s son and grandaughter, from November of last year!

Zulu’s new address is:

Greeting, Fellow supporters and comrades of our beloved revolutionary

Zulu holding the SF Bayview, June 2017

Kenny Zulu Whitmore, who is being illegally held captive in America’s largest modern-day slave plantation, also known as the Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola, La.

On June 28th, 2017, Zulu lost his youngest brother due to a hit and run incident in Zachary, LA, a rural Community that sits in the Northern section of East Baton Rouge, Parish. His brother Alvin Whitmore’s funeral was held on Saturday 8th of July, 2017, and in a surprise move, the Louisiana Department of Corrections allowed Zulu to attend Alvin’s funeral. It was Zulu’s first time in forty-three years that he has been alowed to attend a funeral of a loved one and share grief with his family, signs of the time. Our deepest sympathy goes out to Zulu and his beautiful family, may Alvin Rest In Peace.
In Zulu’s most recent medical checkup he was given a clean Bill of Health, and from recent photo’s the former Black Panther looks very well fit to be a man of sixty-two years of age. He has also enrolled into School working toward getting his High School degree, and will start his C.P.R.-Course on August 21st.
In Legal matters: On July 14th, 2017, District Court Commissioner Denied the State’s brief in trying to have Zulu’s Post Conviction Relief dismissed on procedure grounds, and ORDERED the State to Respond to the merits of the Petition. We will pass on any new up dates, in our next post.

Sending our Revolutionary brother some love and light in that stationary slaveship.

Panther Love, And Solidarity

Updates on Zulu

From the Zulu Europe Support Team, March 18, 2017

Zulu celebrated his birthday with his family in October

Greetings fellow supporters of Kenny Zulu Whitmore. We apologise that it has been so long since we have given you all an update on our beloved Brother and Comrade Zulu, but we were bound by legal means from shining the light on our Warrior Brother’s plight. But here we are nevertheless, with some amazing news about our Brother Zulu.

On November 16th, 2015, Zulu, who was then the prisoner longest held in solitary confinement after Albert Woodfox, was released to general population, transferred to a dormitory within the prison in Angola, LA. After thirty-seven and a half years of living in a 9-6 ft cell, Zulu now shares the dormitory with 94 other prisoners. Being as well-known as he is, he has not had any problems of retaliation.

Zulu has a prison job where he is earning 2 ct an hour, as most of the prisoners do in Angola, LA, or should we call it what it is (a mere 2 ct an hour as amodern-day slave on one of the largest plantations in America). But it has been reported that Zulu is in good health and in strong spirits as always.

Zulu receives regular visits from his family, friends and his legal team. Zulu’s 14-year-old granddaughter Reagan says: “I love Big Papa and want him to come home!” Her father, Zulu’s son Rodney, takes her to see her grandfather whenever possible.

Zulu has completed several educational re-entry programs since being in the General Population area of the prison, and he is slanted to enroll in the GED program on a C.P.R. course in the very near future. Our brother Zulu has also become a very skillful craftsman in leather craft, such as belts, etc.

On the legal front, Kenny Zulu Whitmore was convicted of murder and armed robbery of the ex-Mayor of a rural community in East Baton Rouge Parish, that happened August 15th, 1973, and he was tried on January 3rd to 6th, 1977. He was convicted and sentenced to Life and over a hundred years in prison.

On July 31st 2014, Zulu’s legal team filed a Post Conviction Relief (PCR) citing several constitutional violations in Baton Rouge District Court. After over 24 months and many other small litigations it was ordered by the District Court Commissioner on February 2nd, 2017, that the State of Louisiana respond to the Constitutional claims made within Zulu’s Post Conviction Relief. We are waiting to hear when there will be a Hearing, and we will keep you updated whenever possible.
