Katlego Maboe, a SABC 3 presenter, took to Instagram to write a heartfelt tribute to his mother Moruti Maboe.
Katlego’s mother celebrated her birthday today, and the TV host dedicated a special birthday message to her that warmed many people’s hearts. Katlego thanked her for being such a caring and loving mother.
“Mama aka Sis B aka Di Mamzo aka Moruti Maboe – HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are the North Star that has always kept us on course, the fire that has kept us warm on the coldest of nights. You’re our prayer warrior; our root keeping us grounded, providing the nurturing that has kept us thriving no matter what the circumstances. Thank you for all this and so much – no words will ever,” he wrote.
Katlego is ending 2022 on a high note after nearly losing everything he worked for. Katlego Maboe left Expresso as a presenter at the end of 2020 to focus on personal concerns stemming from claims of abuse leveled against him.
After a lengthy legal process, Katlego was cleared of these claims in January 2022. On Monday, August 8, 2022, he returned to The Expresso Morning Show.
Katlego delivered an emotional interview about how the controversy devastated his life in the first episode.
“A lot has changed. I didn’t know what this would feel like, It felt good. It felt welcoming, like home. Just a home that you haven’t seen in a long time,” he opened up.“No matter what has happened to me over the past couple of years, I never want to let go of this desire that I have, to be a force of positivity in people’s lives. There was a moment when I thought the darkest thoughts. I thought wouldn’t it be better if it was just done? Just quickly. Now. Done. My family wouldn’t have to worry about having to call me every day and deal with me”.
“There have been many touch-and-go moments where my self-identity was questioned, but I worked my way through it with support from friends and family and people who I met in person or on social media who have constantly told me to ‘Get up and start again’.”
His ex Monique Muller was not too happy about this so she took aim at the media but under the disguise that she was addressing Johnny Depp.
“It’s actually pathetic how facts don’t matter. The whole media thing is BS. I have a right to my opinion. I will not say ‘I told you so’. But I hope this opens up everyone’s eyes and minds to the fact that you do not know the full story. Just because you saw the manipulated version Johnny Depp’s team wanted you to see. Instead of spreading hate, put all that energy into fighting GBV. Something that actually involves and affects all of us as South Africans”.
