Nikita Murray, the woman accused of having an affair with Expresso host Katlego Maboe, has released a statement detailing her side of the story. Murray confirmed via her lawyer that she was tested for an STD and her results came back negative.
Maboe is currently embroiled in a cheating scandal following the release of a video on social media that quickly went viral. In the video his partner Monique Muller, who is also the mother of his child, accuses him of having an affair. Maboe admits to cheating on her and names Murray as the woman he was having an affair with. Muller further adds that he gave her an STD and that she might not be able to have another child because of it.
In a series of Instagram stories, Muller’s brother then alleged that the host gave her a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) that has led to damage in her womb, and that this will affect her chances of having a child.
Maboe was temporarily suspended from his hosting work on the morning show “Expresso”, and Outsurance has pulled their adverts starring him.
Now, Murray’s lawyer, Vincent Bergh of Liquor Law and Business Consultants, issued a statement on his client and her husband Matthew’s behalf. In the statement, he calls the accusations against Murray malicious and wild.
“Our clients are very perturbed about the wild allegations flying around in the media, involving Mrs Murray and her family,” reads the statement, according to Times Live.
“Due to these allegations, Mrs Murray had undergone a medical test to confirm that she has no sexually transmitted disease. The claims by Mr Maboe that Mrs Murray was the cause of him contracting the STD as accused of by the person who made the video, is therefore irresponsible and impossible.”
“We want to reiterate that our clients are happily married and they have dealt with the effects of this malicious video in private. Their marriage is stronger than before,” it continues. “They want to thank all their family and friends and the public who had supported them during these trying times. We trust that you will set the record straight and not harass our clients any further.”
