The Katlego Maboe saga continues. Well Outsurance felt it had to state its position after tweeps called for its fall after they dropped the presenter from their roster.
Outsurance spokesperson Natasha Kawulesar spoke to IOL earlier this week to respond to the backlash they faced after they pulled Katlego Maboe’s ads from their site as a result of cheating and domestic abuse claims made by Katlego’s estranged wife Monique Muller.
Outsurance makes it clear that Katlego was not an employee but a paid actor who worked and got paid on a campaign-by- campaign basis.
Katlego has also been paid for all his work and outsurance owes him nothing.
“It is important to note that Katlego is not an Outsurance employee or a permanent contractor to Outsurance. He is a professional actor who is paid on a campaign-by- campaign basis. Katlego has received his full compensation from Outsurance for all past as well as the current campaign in which he was featured. This includes performance as well as full usage fees for the entire campaign,”
While rumours are circulationg that Nikita was Katlego’s work wife, Outsurance denies these claims.
“We also want to clarify that Nikita Murray is not a current Outsurance employee. She last worked for the company in 2018. Katlego and Nikita met independently”
Tweeps had called out the insurance company for wanting to fire him for cheating on his wife.

In a long written confession, Katlego decided to set the record straight with everyone on his Instagram page and admit to cheating but vehemently deny any abuse allegations.
I was unfaithful to my partner during a very important time of our lives – an act I regret to this day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings. As you can imagine, separations are quite a difficult thing to deal with, especially with a child involved.
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.
I had chosen to deal with this matter privately to protect and safeguard our child. At the end of the day, our child is all that matters to me.
However, I will leave this to the legal system and let the truth have its day.”
