Cape Town - Five people have been shortlisted to fill a vacancy on the SABC board, Parliament's portfolio committee on communications said on Friday.

In a meeting on Wednesday, the committee chose five of 11

The shortlisted candidates are:

* Leah Thabisile Khumalo

* Vuyelwa Qinga-Vika

* Chose Andrew Kenilworth Choeu

* Ntombenhle Khathwane

Kholwane said the committee would do its best to fill the vacancy before the end of Parliament's last term for the year.
