Members of Parliament sitting on the Parliaments Portfolio Committee on Communications met on Tuesday. The SABC's annual reports and finances were on the agenda.
According to EWN reporter Rahima Essop an open letter written by the SABC 8 sent to MPs was also discussed.
In the letter, the group expressed concerns that President Jacob Zuma and Communication Minister Ayanda Dlodlo, want to take over the process of choosing the board despite the fact that Parliament has already vetted all the candidates.
The President is yet to officially appoint a board, leaving the broadcaster boardless for almost two weeks.
In the letter, they are saying they are worried that the Minister (Dlodlo) wants to extend the contracts of the current acting COO, CFO and CEO.— Rahima Essop, EWN reporter
The previous board was in the process of finding qualified people to fill these key executive positions before the board's term expired last month.— Rahima Essop, EWN reporter
According to Essop, MPs are today discussing on how to respond to the open letter penned by the SABC 8.
There is a concern that the SABC 8 are operating like a faction within the organisation, questioning the approach they have taken to relay their concerns.
It is usually the board that appears before parliament but in today's meeting the Minister was accompanied by the acting CEO, COO and CFO, says Essop.
