S3 and Cardova TV have confirmed that television host Katlego Maboe will be making a highly anticipated return to The Expresso Morning Show on Monday, 8 August 2022.
"Maboe took time off as presenter of Expresso at the end of 2020 to focus on personal matters that stemmed from allegations of abuse against him," a press statement read.
Since the start of 2022, Maboe has slowly returned to the limelight with presenting gigs, a podcast and a recent live performance.
On his significant return next Monday, Maboe unpacks the challenging journey he has been on over the past two years and how he got back to himself. The South African TV personality will share his story with Graeme Richards in what promises to be an emotional sit-down.
"It truly is difficult to put into words what I feel at the moment – being back to the place I called home for a decade," Maboe said in the press statement.
"I'm filled with so much gratitude for all those who have been supportive and encouraging throughout this journey. I'm looking forward to having the opportunity, once again, to help an incredible team deliver an inspiring show to our people."
Maboe added, "I'm a mixture of tingling nerves and childlike excitement at the thought of the first 'Good morning!' and I hope that when all is said and done, I would have done everyone proud. Thank you all."
Cardova TV MD Patience Stevens stated they are "relieved that the legal process has run its course and that Katlego has cleared himself in court of such allegations". Stevens added, "Domestic violence is a serious problem in our society and one which Cardova as a company stands strongly against."
"He is a rare talent, and we are very happy to be welcoming him back to Expresso," Stevens concluded.
"S3 has always viewed the allegations levelled against Mr Maboe in a serious light, and we are delighted that the courts have exonerated him. He can now return to the Expresso family as the host of the show," Pat Van Heerden, S3 Head of Channel, said.
