In a statement shared with Channel24, Katlego Maboe’s publicist, Fabrizia Degli Esposti, said: “The allegations made against Katlego Maboe are false and are an attempt by his former partner to harass and victimise him in order to cause emotional harm, as well as reputational and economic damage. The matter is currently being litigated and is therefore sub-judice, and accordingly he cannot comment further as to do so would potentially be undermining the court’s process. Katlego Maboe kindly asks for privacy at this time.”
Cardova Productions in a statement tells Channel24 that Katlego Maboe has been removed from Expresso pending an internal investigation and that the SABC3 morning show “condemn[s] any acts of violence and mistreatment, especially against women and children and take such allegations very seriously”.
“Certain serious allegations have been posted on social media about Katlego Maboe and, last night, a video was leaked showing Katlego Maboe seemingly admitting to cheating on his partner. We have been informed that a legal process relating to the allegations is currently sub-judice.”
“We condemn any acts of violence and mistreatment, especially against women and children, and therefore take such allegations very seriously. Until such time as the matter has been fully investigated, and pending the outcome, Katlego Maboe will not be appearing on The Expresso Morning Show,” the statement reads.
