Inside Katlego Maboe’s New Years Day Arrest
Katlego Maboe landed himself in more hot water earlier this month when he apparently got arrested.
The TV personality was allegedly arrested for being in contempt of court on the 2nd of January and a police officer confirmed the SABC 3 presenter’s arrest.
He apparently appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court four days later (January 6), but it was later revealed by his lawyer; Ellen Louis that he wasn’t supposed to appear in court in the first place as the charges against him were false.
He was accused of cheating on his wife with a former OUTsurance employee; Nikita Murray and giving his wife an STD.
Maboe was a brand ambassador for OUTsurance and has been replaced by media personality Elana Afrika because of his cheating scandal. He’s also been accused of abusing his wife.
Maboe defended the STD and abuse allegations on his social media: “In light of the comments made against me, I would like to state that I have never abused my partner. I have always and will always stand up against the abuse of women and children – in fact, the abuse of anyone for that matter. The allegations about the STD are unproven.“
That wasn’t the end of Maboe’s troubles as his name got dragged through the mud once more when another sex scandal came to light after he allegedly had sex with a competition winner for a brand he was working for at the time.
Phil Mphela tweeted:
“Katlego Maboe’s alleged sex dalliance with competition winner could end his career. New revelations in You Mag allege— Maboe, as Lay’s Chips ambassador at the time, had sex in a hotel in Kiev with a woman who won competition hosted by the brand.
While the cheating & STD revelations were a private matter and Maboe could have survived it, latest revelations alleging he used his position for sex may be harder to overcome. The sex was reportedly consensual but this will hurt his chances of ever working with brands”
Maboe apparently had an affair with Lorna Maseko years ago when she was married.
He also appeared in court on the 3rd of November 2020 for going against the protection order that his wife took out last year.
An NPA spokesperson; Eric Ntabazalila confirmed that both Katlego and Monique would be required to attend the proceedings.
It is unclear if the former Espresso presenter would be returning to the SABC 3 morning show as he’s still suspended.
