Pretoria - ANC Youth League statements on land distribution could lead to "anarchy and disorder", a civil rights organisation warned on Friday.

"[We are] concerned that the tone and the posture of the youth league presents an opportunity of anarchy and disorder," said the SA National Civics Organisation's (Sanco) Gauteng chairperson Aubrey Nxumalo.

"[We agree] that the land discussion is at the hard core of the political emancipation. We have been, and always will, support the processes which are aimed at achieving this important milestone through stability, peace and mutual benefiting and that must be speeded-up," he said in a statement.

On Sunday, Julius Malema reportedly warned ruling party leaders they should either follow league policies - which included land grabs - or face removal from office.

He made his comments at the closing ceremony of the ANCYL conference, where he was re-elected leader.

Malema has in the past accused white people of being criminals for "stealing" land.

Nxumalo said they would be engaging the ANC on the detailed report regarding land distribution, particularly the willing-buyer-willing-seller programme.

Nxumalo also voiced concern at the slow delivery of land, saying giving thousands of rands to poor communities did not necessary solve the problem of ownership and the productive use of land.

The organisation also hit back at Malema who questioned the role it played in society.

"Sanco is on the ground rather than on [the] media trying to promote ourselves and the existence of the organisation.

"If the youth league wants to know [about] the existence of Sanco they must not talk at Gallagher [but] rather go to people on the ground and they will find Sanco there continuing to assist the communities."
