The Democratic Alliance wants a briefing on the real state of the South African Broadcasting Corporation's finances. 

News24 report that DA spokesperson Phumzile van Damme said the party would be requesting an urgent meeting of Parliament's communications committee for a full briefing by Treasury on the status of the SABC's finances. This after the City Press on Sunday reported that the public broadcaster was so broke that the production of new TV shows has been halted and staff members fear they won't be paid.
