Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo says she will this week meet with Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba to discuss how Treasury can help intervene in the SABC's cash crisis.

Malusi Gigaba and I will meet to determine what interventions Treasury can throw at us to keep the SABC afloat.

She says the meeting will explore the various options, including the potential for a financial bailout.

According to Dlodlo, the cash-strapped public broadcaster has been struggling to pay its employees.

Dlodlo says the department is working on tackling misappropriation of money, negligence, mismanagement and gross corruption at the SABC.
