Expanding Lakes, Drowned Farms and Disruption of Food Security
Between 2013 and 2020 flooding has reduced the distance between Lake Bogoria and Lake Baringo from 23 kilometres to 8 Kilometres. Scientists estimate the two lakes might merge within the next decade. Meanwhile, the Suswa fault lines split and caused major damage to critical road and rail infrastructure. What does this mean for the future of Rift Valley, its lakes, fault lines, and those who live close to its lakes, geysers, and faults? Dr Charles Gichaba joins our senior producer Joe Kobuthi to explore the implications of an increasingly geologically active Rift Valley which runs right through the country from north to south.
