Outsurance’s decision came just hours after ‘The Expresso Morning Show‘ issued an official statement this morning confirming Maboe’s suspension after the TV presenter’s wife alleged he gave her a sexually-transmitted diseases in a viral Twitter video.
“We condemn any acts of violence and mistreatment, especially against women and children, and therefore take such allegations very serious,” Cardova Productions said in a statement – after Maboe admitted to cheating on his wife, but denied ever abusing her.
“Truth: I was unfaithful to my partner during a very important time of our lives – an act I regret to this day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings,” the South African television personality shared on social media.
While some argue the removals appear to do more with the abuse allegation than his cheating admission, others reckon such actions are justified not only from the reputational interests of the companies in question – as highlighted in this article – but given that gender based violence is a serious concern in South Africa. We can’t agree more!
