Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma said on Sunday he had not received a resignation letter from former SABC board member Pippa Green.

"The Presidency has no record of the letter," said presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj.

On Sunday, the Sunday Times reported that Pippa Green had sent a resignation letter to Zuma this week.

She was alleged to have noted some irregularities in an appointment process for the SABC chief financial officer's position in the letter.

Green was part of the national broadcaster's board which was officially dissolved this week after a meeting of parliament's communications portforlio committee.

Earlier this month, the board chair Ben Ngubane and his deputy Thami ka Plaatjie, resigned, followed by another six resignations.

At the time, Green - along with Suzanne Vos and Claire McNeil - were reported to be the three members who did not resign with their colleagues. Following the dissolution of the board, an interim board has since been recommended.

"The recommendation is still being processed at the ministry of communications, before being passed to the president for finalisation," said Maharaj on Sunday.

The interim board members are Zandile Tshabalala, Noluthando Gosa - who was among the board members who resigned - Vusi Mavuso, Ronnie Lubisi and Iraj Abedian.
