Following his arrest on the January 2, he appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on January 6. His PR team refused to comment about the matter as it is ongoing.

News24 reports that the presenter was apparently not supposed to appear in court in the first place. This was revealed by his lawyer Ellen Louis who told the publication that the charges against Katlego were false.

His arrest has been linked by various publications to the case his ex-girlfriend opened against him. Last year Monique Muller accused Katlego of not only cheating on him with a former OUTsurance employee Nikita Murray, but she also alleged that he transmitted an STD which prevents her from falling pregnant. Allegations of domestic abuse also thrown around however were refuted by him.

"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," he wrote on Instagram

She also claims to have been given an STD by the presenter and musician however Katlego refuted those claims,  "The allegations about the STD are unproven.“

Katlego's name got tainted once more after another sex scandal came to light after he allegedly had sex with a competition winner for a brand he was working for at the time. 

Phil Mphela wrote on twitter: "Katlego Maboe’s alleged sex dalliance with competition winner could end his career. New revelations in You Mag allege— Maboe, as Lay’s Chips ambassador at the time, had sex in a hotel in Kiev with a woman who won competition hosted by the brand.

"While the cheating & STD revelations were a private matter and Maboe could have survived it, latest revelations alleging he used his position for sex may be harder to overcome. The sex was reportedly consensual but this will hurt his chances of ever working with brands"

This is not the first time Katlego has been in trouble with the law. He reportedly appeared in court on the 3rd of November 2020 for going against the protection order Monique took out in September. According to Rapport, the NPA spokesperson Eric Ntabazalila confirmed that both Katlego and Monique would be required to attend the proceedings.

According to Nikita, the first time her baby daddy hit her, she got a restraining order against him.
