Embattled TV personality Katlego Maboe is set to officially return to Expresso Morning Show next week Monday.
TV channel S3 and production company Cardova TV confirmed the news in a joint statement issued to Sowetan on Tuesday morning.
The SA Film and Television Awards (Safta) winning presenter was axed from the show in late 2020 after a public cheating scandal, followed by allegations of abuse levelled against him by his former partner.
“At the end of 2020, Katlego Maboe took time off as presenter from Expresso to focus on personal matters that stemmed from allegations of abuse that were made against him. After a protracted legal process, the courts absolved Katlego against these allegations in January 2022,” the statement read.
“On his big return next Monday, Katlego will be in conversation with Graeme Richards in what promises to be an emotional sit-down as Katlego unpacks the challenging journey he has been on over the past two years and how he got back to himself.”
Sowetan has further confirmed that Maboe will be back as regular presenter after the Monday episode on the show airing between 6am and 9am weekdays.
“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,” said Maboe.
