What country does Malawi belong to?
Do you know the singer Madonna? She has two adopted children and they are from the country of Malawi. This is located in Southeast Africa and otherwise gets little into the headlines of newspapers and magazines. But when Madonna went there in 2014, everyone reported about it. However, they reported more about the famous rich singer than about the still very poor African country. Malawi is one of the least developed countries in the world. We’ll tell you about the country here!
What else is exciting to tell about Malawi besides the fact that a singer traveled here and started aid projects?
Malawi is located in the East African Rift Valley. This rift valley extends from Mozambique in the south of the continent to Ethiopia in the north and is constantly widening. So, it forms a wide valley in the lands through which it passes. The earth’s crust of Africa, which is several kilometers thick, is torn there. This creates elongated incisions. Africa will eventually split into two parts and a new sea will emerge between these parts. But that will probably take a few million years! Geologists believe that the African continent is sinking further and further because of the stretching. What is still land today will someday be below sea level and will be washed over by the sea.
