  • Rumours circulating on social media that Katlego Maboe will return to  Expresso Morning Show are false, says Cardova Productions.

Rumours circulating on social media that Katlego Maboe will return to The Expresso Morning Show are false, says Cardova Productions.

On 7 January a post on "Home of Celebs" Facebook page claimed that the disgraced TV personality would soon return as presenter to the SABC 3 morning show. 

"Katlego Maboe got a second chance. Yes, Kat is back on Expresso. after a massive fight and petitions to bring him back with GBV allegations, Mr Maboe can breath a sigh of relief as Expresso morning show renewed his contract, [sic]" said the Facebook entry

Cardova Productions has since squashed rumours of Katlego's return, saying these reports are entirely false and that the host's contract had not been renewed. 

In response to a media enquiry, Patience Stevens, owner of Cardova Productions, told Channel24 that "the rumours circulating on social media is fake news".

Patience said that the statement Cardova Productions issued on 23 October 2020 still applies.

In that statement, Cardova Productions said that the SABC3 morning show "condemns any acts of violence and mistreatment, especially against women and children and take such allegations very seriously".

"We condemn 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 The Expresso Morning Show," she statement continued. 

In late-2020, Katlego in a now-viral video confessed to being unfaithful to his former partner Monique Muller, who is also the mother to his son. The couple is currently embroiled in an ugly legal battle behind closed doors in court.
