UPDATE: Katlego’s cheating confession: Here’s what OUTsurance, Expresso, and the alleged ‘other woman’ have to say
Expresso Presenter and insurance commercial star, Katlego Maboe, found himself trending for all the wrong reasons after a video of his wife confronting him for cheating on her leaked and went viral. He has since admitted to the claims…
Katlego’s name has been trending at the top of the Twitter charts since late on Thursday night after a damning video, shot by his wife during a heated altercation, was leaked to social media. He has since opened up to the public about the entire ordeal, admitting that he and his wife, Monique Muller, are in the middle of what he described as a “painful” separation.
The award-winning-presenter, who is renowned for his charming commercials and his nationwide catchphrase, “Chencha Daai Ding!“, would have been wishing he could change the narrative after the country watched as his emotional spouse accused him of cheating on her. She also claimed in the video that she had contracted an STD as a result of his philandering ways.
Katlego confesses on video
In the video, a sullen Katlego can be seen reluctantly answering his wife’s questioning as she emotionally probes him about a woman she believes he slept with while they were married. She begins by offering him an ultimatum – to tell the truth, or to lose access to his family forever. Katlego and Monique have a child together who was born in 2018.
With seemingly no other option, Katlego admits to sleeping with another woman before naming her in the video and alleging that the incident occurred after a night out.

The video first emerged on social media late on Thursday evening, but it didn’t take long for other sources to begin adding fuel to the fire. An Instagram user by the name of Seth Muller, believed to be Monique’s brother, came out and wrote on his Instagram Stories:
“…Fun fact, he prolly[sic] wouldn’t want the public to know either, he gave my sister a std which activated cancer cells and she might not be able to have children again, he also cheated on her while she was pregnant with his son and multiple other times”
Seth also went as far as accusing the 33-year-old TV personality of allegedly physically abusing his sister in a separate post.

Who is the person he had an affair with?
In all of the drama, one person who found herself in the crossfire is the woman who Katlego claimed he slept with in the video above. Social media users wasted no time in uncovering her social media profiles. It was quickly discovered that she too works for an insurance company that Katlego is associated with. This added another dimension to the already messy love triangle. It was also revealed that the woman is married although it is unclear whether the affair has had an impact on her own relationship.
Katlego Sets the Record Straight
Realising that the video and the allegations had blown up beyond control, Katlego took matters into his own hands and issued a statement on Twitter where he began by saying,
“Truth: I was unfaithful to my partner during a very important time of our lives – an act I regret to this day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings.”
He took a moment to deny all allegations of abuse when he wrote:
The reaction on social media has been profound and widespread, as commentators shared their opinions on the incriminating video and the accusations that have since followed.
