Johannesburg - Members of the ANC Youth League must stop discussing their personal views in the media, the league's national task team (NTT) said on Friday.

"We are alarmed at this foreign tendency of decentralised commentary on organisational issues... when the national leadership has taken a posture to limit its engagement with the media during the rebuilding process," the NTT said in a statement.

"In this regard, we call upon all members of the youth league to stop parading their views in the media and allow organisational processes to take precedence."

It said if the "tendency" continued, it would discipline members.

"We are focusing on elections work to ensure decisive victory for the ANC. Any divergent views will not assist but undermine progress we are making," it said.

"The NTT is not a group of ancestors; it will pronounce itself on its decisions at an appropriate time."

The NTT said its visits to provincial and regional branches were "helpful".

"We discourage membership from writing in their personal capacities, but still stating their associations with the league, as those views are mostly attributed to our structures and the mother body."
