Katlego Maboe was dismissed as the ambassador of OUTsurance amid the controversy surrounding his infidelity and abuse claims, which trended on social media for several days.
Katlego Maboe, in October 2020, appears to have irreparably damaged his career and guy-next-door image. This was after a video of the suspended Expresso presenter admitting to having cheated on his partner made headlines. Katlego’s admittance of infidelity came on the back of his now estranged partner, Monique Muller, alleging that he subsequently infected her with a sexually transmitted disease (STD), which has threatened her ability to have any more kids.
While the video might have done irreparable damage to his public image, it is believed that the abuse allegations that followed resulted in him being immediately removed as the brand ambassador of OUTsurance.
The dismissal was initially met with backlash from his fans, as they claimed that if everyone who ever cheated on their partner were to lose their job, then the country would have little to no employed persons. However, there have since been more scandals and rumours about Katlego. The most recent allegations claim that he had a relationship with a competition winner, which reportedly corresponds with certain details from his confession video.
