In 10 Million Years, East Africa Will Disassociate Itself From African Continent

This is real, due to the tectonic forces, the rift valley crossing the Ugandan Land to Ethiopia will continue to disintegrate. The ongoing processes are also witnessed in Indian Plate.

The Great Rift Valley cuts Tanzania, following the Ridge, to Uganda and Rwanda and Burundi Border, up to the Ethiopian border. There are forces pulling the two ridges opposite one another and if it persists, it will going to tear apart, and this is what is being experienced.

In order to understand we will use an example

You've got a friend, you two are holding a piece of wood. Every day, you two bend it, it is so obvious it will develop a line of weakness, continuing applying pressure will make it break. Same with the tectonic forces. Research shows that the Atlantic ocean has the deepest trench, also caused by two plates moving away from each other. In the coming years, East Africa, and Indian plates will detach from their parent plate.
