Just once we were still celebrating his comeback following his South African Film and tv Awards (SAFTAs) nomination, TV presenter Katlego Maboe has been faraway from the nomination list. Last month the SAFTAs announced the nominations and he was nominated for the simplest TV Presenter.

Yesterday Phil Mphela announced that Katlego has been dumped by the SAFTAs.

He tweeted: “SHOCKER: Katlego Maboe dumped by SAFTAs. The NFVF says after some consideration, the SAFTAs jury has decided to rescind Katlego Maboe’s nomination within the BEST TV PRESENTER category. Voting code 5 has been removed. All votes cast for Maboe are voided.”

Twitter users were shocked by the news, here are some reactions

“I think it’s incompetent and unprofessional of them to nominate him, allow us to vote for him and later dump him like this. This says tons about SAFTAs also, is that really about cheating? I mean hasn’t he paid enough for his transgressions? I pity him his talent is unmatched”

Disadvantages of your business going call at public or being a star at the best . Surely if ever this was addressed privately , I don’t think such things would be happening to him. Yes, there are lessons we’re learning from his actions but hey I just think all of this could’ve,..”

Also reacting to the news Phil said: “This is embarrassing & further affects the credibility of the SAFTAs. Who is within the SAFTAs jury and the way did they not know nominating Katlego would be controversial? They got the eye by nominating him and now they wanna score more PR by dumping him. Sad.”

Last year, Katlego’s cheating confession video made rounds on social media.
He also shared a press release on Instagram admitting to having cheated on his partner. however, he denied being abusive to her.

The statement read: “I was unfaithful to my partner during a really important time of our lives – an act I regret to the present day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings. As you’ll imagine, separations are quite difficult thing to affect , especially with a toddler involved.

“In light of the comments made against me, i might wish to state that I even have never abused my partner. I even have always and can always get up against the abuse of girls and youngsters – actually , the abuse of anyone for that matter. I had chosen to affect this matter privately to guard and safeguard our child. At the top of the day, our child is all that matters to me.”
