Somalia and half of Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania are expected to split from Africa to form a new continent.

after massive Earth movements on Monday morning left deep fissures in Narok County.

At the intersection of the damage with the busy Mai Mahiu-Narok road, what was recently an even plain of fertile, arable land has been reduced to a rugged expanse, with a huge tear that is as much as 50 feet deep and more than 20 metres wide running through it.

This spot, however, is just one of the tens, perhaps hundreds, of other weak spots on the Great Rift Valley, which runs through the continent from the Horn of Africa to Mozambique, scientists say.
