In a statement, Cardovo Productions confirmed that the award-winning presenter has been suspended from the show. The production company condemned any act of violence and mistreatment, especially against women and children and "take such allegations very seriously".
"Until such time as the matter has been fully investigated, and pending the outcome, Katlego Maboe will not be appearing on The Expresson Morning Show," read the statement.
