Zulu Energy Corp. Raises $8.0 Million in Private Placement

Proceeds to Fund Coalbed Methane Development Operations in Botswana, Africa

SHERIDAN, WY--(Marketwire - May 9, 2008) - Zulu Energy Corp. (OTCBB: ZLUE) ("Zulu Energy" or the "Company") today announced it has raised $8.0 million in a private placement of its securities with institutional accredited investors.

The transaction, which consisted of eight million shares of common stock and eight million warrants exercisable at $1.50 per share, resulted in net proceeds to the Company after fees and expenses of approximately $7.0 million. The warrants will not be exercisable until the Company amends its articles of incorporation to increase its authorized shares of common stock. The Company has granted registration rights to the investors in the private placement.

Paul Stroud, president and CEO of Zulu Energy, said the capital infusion is a major milestone in the Company's plans to develop its properties in northeastern Botswana. The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary Nyati Botswana, owns exploration licenses covering 2.2 million acres in the Kalahai Karoo Basin.

"This capital infusion enables us to proceed with establishing our operational infrastructure and commencing initial exploratory work in Botswana," said Stroud.

The securities are not registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy in any jurisdiction.
