Katlego Maboe’s height of 5’10 or 178cm and his looks and communication abilities render him perfect for a television career. 

He got it when in 2009, he signed up for a program created by the lifestyle magazine, DEKAT

The coolest gigs we’ve seen him take on would be the Tropika Island of Treasure in 2018 and the Huisgenoot Tempo Toekennings. He also hosted season two of our favourite show, Strictly Come Dancing.

Away from the glare of the camera, Katlego is a chartered accountant. He studied to be a CA but pursued a career in entertainment instead.

Who Is Katlego Maboe’s Girlfriend?

Monique Muller, Katlego Maboe’s girlfriend since 2016, got married after a one-night stand, as told by Muller. 

Though there are rumours that Monique Muller and Katlego Maboe’s wedding happened secretly, most people believe that they are just live-in partners. 

Although the marriage had its fair share of controversies, they had a happy union together for many years. 

Monique, Katlego Maboe’s wife, bore him a son named Phoenix Katlego Maboe. Until 2020, the trio lived together in Katlego Maboe’s house in Johannesburg.

Things fell apart when Muller learnt that Maboe cheated on her. She found out when she contracted an STD. Knowing that she had not been with anyone but Katlego, Monique knew her husband was having an affair. 

Things unravelled for Katlego from here. He was suspended from presenting the Expresso Show, allegations of abuse against his spouse surfaced and Maboe lost his deal with OUTsurance. 

He was the face of the brand and got replaced with Elana Afrika after these allegations surfaced. The two have since separated.

The court has now ruled that Katlego Maboe doesn't have a case to answer as far as abuse allegations are concerned. 

Furthermore, he is now demanding R4 million for reputation and psychological damage from his ex-wife Monique, her brother, Sabrina Walters who is the founder of Women's For Change and Janet Van Eeden, Chairperson of the judges for the National Film and Video Foundation.

His Comeback

After his run-ins with the law, Katlego Maboe is slowly making his comeback to television. After the show Tropika Island teased fans about its next host, fans quickly reached the conclusion that Katelgo was the new presenter.

It must be said that the show hasn't made an official announcement on the matter. Contrary to what you might think, fans were happy about his rumoured return and some vowed to watch the show again.  

What Was Katlego Maboe’s Scandal About?

Katlego Maboe was arrested in January for being in contempt of court. The arrest is alleged to be related to a harassment case opened by his former partner Monique Muller after he purportedly violated a protection order she had been granted against him.

Katlego Maboe’s OUTsurance Contract Cancelled

Following news of his infidelity, Katlego Maboe’s OUTsurance contract got cancelled. OUTsurance distanced itself from Katlego Maboe by pulling all his advertisements off the air. 

Expresso, too, issued a statement. They confirmed that Katlego would not be on air pending the outcome of the inquiry.

The scandal brought Katlego Maboe’s family into disrepute. Will we ever find out what happened? Or what drove him to commit such acts? We guess we’ll have to wait for the day that Katlego Maboe spills the tea. 

Katlego Maboe’s Charity Work

Katlego rode the Cape Town Cycle Tour with Doctor Michael Mol in 2011 and 2013 to raise funds for charity. 

In 2014, he was appointed as a HOPE Cape Town Goodwill Ambassador. He worked on projects that focused on providing health and education in Cape Town.
