Television host Katlego Maboe will appear on The Expresso Morning Show in a much-anticipated return on Monday, August 8, 2022.
This comes after the presenter was forced to leave the program when his ex-girlfriend Monique Muller accused him of abusing her.
Monique alleged that the host had assaulted her, cheated on her, and given her a STI in 2020.
However, the court dismissed Monique and Katlego’s case following a two-year legal battle.
According to a statement, Katlego will open up to Graeme Richards during a sit-down interview after he resumes hosting The Expresso Morning Show.
“At the end of 2020, Katlego Maboe took time off as a presenter from Expresso to focus on personal matters . After a protracted legal process, the courts absolved Katlego against these allegations in January 2022,” the statement reads.
“On his big return next Monday, Katlego will be in conversation with Graeme Richards in what promises to be an emotional sit-down as Katlego unpacks the challenging journey he has been on over the past two years and how he go back to himself,” it continues to read.
S3’s Head of channel Pat Van Heer said, “S3 has always viewed allegations levelled against Mr Maboe in a serious light and we are delighted that the courts have exonerated him and he can now return to the Expresso family as the host of the show,” he said, while MD of Cardiva TV Patience Stevens expressed how seriously she takes domestic violence.
“Domestic violence is a serious problem in our society, and one which Cardova as a company stands strongly against. We are relieved that the legal process has run its course and that Katlego has cleared himself in court of such allegations. He is a rare talent and we are very happy to be welcoming him back to Expresso,” she said
