- Katlego Maboe is set to appear in court after breaching a protection order taken out against him by ex Monique Muller, according to Rapport.
- The former couple will appear in court on Tuesday.
- Katlego made headlines after a video surfaced online in which he confessed to cheating on Monique.
Expresso presenter Katlego Maboe will have to appear in court after he allegedly flouted a court order to stay away from his former lover, Monique Muller, according to Rapport.
The publication reported on Sunday that Katlego allegedly broke the stipulations of the protection order that Monique obtained on 3 September in Sea Point, Cape Town.
He will now have to appear in court on Tuesday.
In South Africa, a protection order aims to prevent "the reoccurrence of alleged domestic violence or sexual harassment by stating what conduct the alleged offender must refrain from doing," the SAPS website explains.
Rapport spoke to Eric Ntabazalila, National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson in the Western Cape, who confirmed that Katlego, as well as Monique, will have to be in court on this coming Tuesday, 3 November.
The growing scandal surrounding the TV personality comes after a video surfaced on social media last week in which Katlego is confronted by Monique over infidelity.
In the clip, Katlego, dressed in a gown, sheepishly admits to having cheated on Monique with another woman identified as Nikita Murray, who has since locked her social media accounts.
Katlego Maboe has since disappeared from the public eye, only releasing a terse statement, saying: "I was unfaithful to my partner during a very important time of our lives - an act I regret to this day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings".
He added: "In light of the comments made against me, I would like to state that I have never abused my partner."

Truth: I was unfaithful to my partner during a very important time of our lives - an act I regret to this day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings. As you can imagine, separations are quite a difficult thing to deal with, especially with a child involved. 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. I had chosen to deal with this matter privately to protect and safeguard our child. At the end of the day, our child is all that matters to me. However, I will leave this to the legal system and let the truth have its day.
To try and limit brand damage Cardova Productions removed Katlego from its weekday breakfast show Expresso Morning Show on SABC3 pending further investigations.
Expresso publicist El Broide said in a statement that the SABC3 show "condemns any acts of violence and mistreatment, especially against women and children, and therefore take such allegations very seriously.
"Until such time as the matter has been fully investigated, and pending the outcome, Katlego Maboe will not be appearing on Expresso".
Insurance companyOutsurance rushed to re-edit and scrub all traces of Katlego from the company's "Chencha dai deng" TV commercials, now only showing testimonials of customers without the presenter interviewing them.
Channel24 has previously reached out to Katlego and Monique, both parties have declined to comment.
