Western Cape police confirmed that Katlego Maboe, former host of popular SABC 3 show Expresso and the former face of Outsurance commercials, was arrested earlier in January for being in contempt of court.

“Kindly be advised that a 34-year-old man was arrested on Janaury 2, 2021 in Pinelands for contempt of court and appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on January 6, 2021,” Western Cape SAPS spokesperson Colonel AndrĂ© Traut told News24.

In November 2020, a video circulating on social media showed Maboe’s former partner Monique Muller accuse him of cheating and giving her a sexually transmitted disease that could prevent her from having kids in the future. While many were outraged at Maboe for this reported act, many others also believed that Muller announced the news to garner media attention.

Muller also claimed Maboe physically abused her and she got a protection order against him.

Maboe admitted that he had been unfaithful to Muller, but denied he had ever abused her.

Last year, his publicist Lerato Maleswena told News24 that allegations made against her client are “false and are an attempt by his former partner to harass and victimise him in order to cause him emotional harm as well as reputational and economic damage”.
