TV personality, Katlego Maboe has been removed from the nomination list of South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) 2021.


The news has gone viral and South Africans are furious, as they had celebrated his nomination for the Best TV presenter category some weeks ago, believing he deserves the win, despite personal issues on cheating in his marriage, which came to limelight October 2020.

The news about SAFTAs withdrawal  was shared on social media by Phil Mphela, who tweeted:

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

Katlego trends since Saturday morning, as people express their disappointment in the organizers upon his removal.
