Durban - The ANC will promote discipline in the party in an effort to eliminate "alien tendencies", President Jacob Zuma said on Saturday.

"The movement will continue prioritising organisational discipline and eradicate the alien tendencies that have crept into our movement over the years," Zuma said in Durban.

"These include factionalism, the violent disruption of our meetings and attacking other members, public spats and unauthorised public utterances, the use of money to buy members... and the manipulation of ANC processes for pre-determined outcomes."

Zuma was addressing several thousand African National Congress members at the party's 101st anniversary celebration at Kings Park stadium.

He said the ANC drew a line against ill-discipline at its national general council in 2010.

"Anyone who crosses that line will face the consequences," Zuma warned.

"We call on all ANC members to subject themselves to the discipline of the ANC. The ANC is the leader of society and our behaviour must always be beyond reproach."

He said people should remember that the ANC was the only organisation capable of uniting South Africa.

"We delivered freedom, and we shall deliver prosperity and socio-economic freedom in our lifetime."

Zuma announced the winners of ANC achievement awards and read out the names of members who had died in 2012.
