Last week, Katlego Maboe was thrown into the spotlight after a rather unflattering video surfaced online. The clip, which was filmed and allegedly shared by his wife Monique Muller, shows the presenter admitting that he had had an affair and also passed on an STI to his wife.
Following that, South Africans have used screenshots from the infamous video to make a 'Bomboclaat' meme.
According to the Urban Dictionary, "bomboclaat" is defined as a “common Jamaican expletive” used to express either extreme excitement or extreme sadness.
The new Katlego meme was shared by social media user @javharsingh shortly after the scandal went viral but it has since been used by other tweeps.
Take a look at the original post below:
South Africans decided to use the photos in their own tweets and Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the 'Bomboclaat' posts.
Twitter user, @SlindoMab, commented:
"Me trying to explain to my mom why I came back at 3am."
Briefly.co.za previously reported Maboe's loyal fans have started a petition to have him brought back on TV after he was suspended. The presenter was suspended after a video was shared on social media of him admitting to cheating on his wife and giving her an STI.
After being pressured by social media users, he was suspended from SABC3 show Expresso and his endorsements pulled out pending investigations. Now fans are fighting back with a Change.org petition calling for the media personality to be allowed to resume his duties.
His wife, Monique, has since spoken up about the video and the controversy that followed. People all over the country have been hanging on her every post and avidly following the drama that is Katlego's life these days. Time will tell if the drama gets more heated or simmers down soon.
