Tribalism in churches

Dear editor,
THE issue of tribal inclination in Zambia is not only in politics.
The Church in Zambia has continued to be a victim of ethnicity egocentrism.
I have been privileged to visit different congregations in various parts of Zambia.
My conclusion is that the Seventh-day Adventist Church is largely followed by people from Southern; Reformed church in Zambia by Easterners; New Apostolic by Westerners and North-Westerners ; Catholic and UCZ Northerners etc.
History plays a big role in the inclination of most ethnic groups to a certain church.
However, as long as we continue with this inclination, the fight against tribalism by the Church will remain a big challenge.
