This comes after staff at the public broadcaster's head office had to be evacuated from the building following the diesel leak on Wednesday morning.


It is reported that close to 2 000 litres of diesel had spilt from a generator on the 15th floor.


SABC Spokesperson, Vuyo Mthembu, told JacarandaFM News early on Thursday morning that there still are fumes on some of the floors.


"So, it has been deemed that it is not safe for some of the SABC employees to come back to work today," says Mthembu.


Mthembu says the three commercial radio stations broadcasting from the reception area will continue with their normal programming since the reception has been declared safe.


Mthembu confirmed three staff members received medical attention; however, she cannot confirm if they have been discharged from hospital yet.
