This story was about a crack in Africa that has been proven to mean that Africa is splitting in half. The African continent is splitting up. Geologists believe than in millions of years the African continent will have been fully split up. It was first exposed after a flood in Kenya, where there is the huge rip (the crack). The great rift splits Africa into two plates. Africa is still splitting apart, even as we speak. Will Africa be two separate continents after it has split up? Will other countries start splitting up as well? The continents did actually use to be one big piece, and countries are still splitting up even now.
