- Karabo was lured into what he thought was a job interview
- However, it turned to be the No Excuses: Pay Your Papgeld TV show
- Upon realising it, he literally ran from the scene
A TV presenter with CNBC Africa, Karabo Letlhatlha, literally ran for his dear life when his baby mama cornered him over maintenance of their six-year-old son.
The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, approached the No Excuses: Pay Your Papgeld show on Maja Love TV, Briefly.co.za learned.
This is because Karabo allegedly failed to pay child maintenance for three years despite earning R40,000 a month.
According to Sowetan Live, the show's producers lured Karabo to a Sandton hotel under the pretext of interviewing him for a lucrative job.
However, he took off upon realising he had been tricked. The show's presenter, Moss Makwati, and the TV crew gave chase and caught up with him.
Karabo's baby mama said:
He then agreed to sit down to discuss the matter and he said he was not paying maintenance because I was refusing him access to his child.
However, Karabo later contradicted himself, saying that he wasn't paying because he wanted a paternity test to confirm the child is indeed his.
The TV presenter finally agreed that there should be a meeting between his parents and the baby mama's parents. However, he didn't commit to paying the maintenance.
According to the woman, a Johannesburg family court assessed that Karabo could pay R4,000 a month. To her astonishment, he turned at the second hearing with bank statements showing car payments of R8,000 a month.
