Cape Town - Another SABC board member has resigned, it emerged in a communications portfolio committee meeting in parliament on Tuesday.
Committee chairperson Sikhumbuzo Kholwane said he received a letter informing him of Pippa Green's resignation.
This effectively leaves only Suzanne Vos and Claire O'Neil on the broadcaster's board.
Addressing the committee earlier, Communications Minister Dina Pule denied interfering in the operations of the board, an allegation made by one of the nine board members who resigned over the past few days.
"If I had interfered, some of the things at the board would not have happened... I wish I had interfered," said Pule.
She pleaded with the MPs to ensure the SABC had a functional board soon.
The committee is likely to move to dissolve the board and appoint an interim five-member board.
Currently the board would not be able to meet and approve key decisions at the broadcaster,m because it would not constitute a quorum.
