JOHANNESBURG – Former Expresso presenter Katlego Maboe was exonerated from charges against him of misconduct laid by his ex girlfriend, Monique Muller. The court has ruled in his favour.
According to a statement shared by Katlego read, “TV personality Katlego Maboe was absolved by the Magistrates Court against allegations of alleged misconduct, made by the former partner Ms. Monique Muller, in October 2020.
The court agreed with the submission of a Point of a Limine from Maboe’s legal team, ruling that there were no grounds for obtaining the protection order. Furthermore, the court has not made a finding of acts of domestic violence that were allegedly perpetrated against Ms. Muller, and as such, the matter has been dismissed. This is a great victory for Mr. Maboe, who has maintained his innocence throughout the two-year ordeal.”
“The most important thing to me is the wellbeing of my son, and unfortunately things have settled into a routine for him after being put through such a terrible and lengthy process,” he said.
The TV Personality is grateful for all the support he has received since the beginning of the battle.
“I am so grateful to my friends and family, and my incredible team for the ongoing support, and to the justice system for ruling in my favour of the truth. I may never know or understand the real motive behind all of this destruction and heartache, but right now, I just want to focus on putting the pieces of my life back together,” Katlego said.
This comes after his ex partner made allegations against him after a video of the TV Personality confessing to cheating in his ex.
However, Katlego Maboe has suffered a reputational damage since then in which he found himself without means of income after Outsurance cancelled his contract and SABC3 Expresso Morning Show suspended his contract. Mr Maboe has not recovered since the ordeal following court battle ever since.
Furthermore, Katlego Maboe is still persuing a legal action against his ex Monique Muller’s brother who went online to support the allegations made by his ex. A criminal charge for defamation is pending against the Women For Change founder, Sabrina Walters for making defamatory statements against Maboe. He is also suing the South African Film Television Awards (SAFTAS) for dismissing his nomination in the Best TV Presenter category following the allegations posted by Ms Walters who is expected to appear in court.
