Former Expresso presenter Katlego Maboe is suing his ex-girlfriend Monique Muller for defamatory

Former Expresso Show presenter Katlego Maboe has lodged a crimen injuria complaint with the police against woman for Change founder, Sabrina Walter, for alleged deformation.


It comes after Maboe, through his legal team just over two weeks ago, sent lettersof demand to Walter, his ex-gex-girlfriend Monoque Muller and her brother, Seth, as well as the SA Film and Television awards (Safta), to retract allegations made against him.

He seeks R1 million in compensation from each, and they were given three weeks to respond.


Maboe, 34, was embroiled in a scandal involving infidelity and domestic violence allegations levelled against him last year.

In a video that went viral, allegedly taken by his ex, Muller, Maboe is heard admitting to having an affair with a former employee.

Shortly after the release of the video, the presenter was suspended from SABC1's The Expresso Show and OUTsurance announced the removal of all his TV advertisements.


His legal team argued that the allegations were factually untrue and had caused injury to Maboe's reputation and ability to earn an income.

Walter is alleged to have sent an email to Maboe's various places of employment such as the Expresso Show on SABC 3, when allegations came out light.

Maboe's attorney, Andre Johnston, saidthe complaints were lodged based on legal advice.

"A complaint of crimen injuria/criminal defamation was laid against Sabrina Walter of Women for Change.

"We have requested further police investigation into alleged criminal conduct following a defamatory email that was sent to the National Film and video Foundation.

"These charges were laid based on my legal advice. I support any initiatives that seeks to address inequality. However, in this instance it appears to me that vile untruthful accusations were made not only with the intention to have Mr Maboe removed as a nominee for Safta but also to tarnish his image with Expresso and Cardova," he said.

Walter on Monday said they won't be commenting at this stage.

Police spokesperson Colonel Andre Traut confirmed that a case of crimen injuria case was reported at Muizenburg Police Station on Monday.

This office can confirm that a crimen injuria case was reported at Muizenburg Police Station today. The identities of the perties concerned cannot be disclosed. The circumstances are being investigated,"he said.
