    Nimeona hii habari kuwa mlima Kilimanyaro unategemewa kuripuka katika mwezi wa November mwaka huu.

    What Mt. Kilimanjaro may look like
    during its volcanic explosion
    with the Moshi town below



    Mount Kilimanjaro is likely to explode in volcanic outburst next November. Soldiers serving with military forces of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi are warming up to combat the disaster.

    Kilimanjaro which is Africa’s highest peak and the world’s second highest mountain has never exploded before. The predicted eruption that may occur in six-months from now, is set to affect millions of people living around the gigantic feature. It will be a historical happening … and major disaster!

    Lives and properties will be lost due to explosion, experts have warned that areas such as Marangu, Machame, Himo and Moshi on the other hand will possibly disappear for good

    Arusha — Mount Kilimanjaro is likely to explode in volcanic outburst next November. Soldiers serving with military forces of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi are warming up to combat the disaster.

    Lives and properties will be lost due to explosion, experts have warned that areas such as Marangu, Machame, Himo and Moshi on the other hand will possibly disappear for good.
    Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest point on African continent reaching 5,895 meters (19,340 feet) above sea level, tall enough to maintain a permanent snow cap despite being just 330 kilometers (210 miles) south of the equator.
    It is also the tallest free-standing mountain on the Earth's land surface, rising about 4,600 meters (15,000 feet) above the surrounding plain. Kilimanjaro is a triple volcano (has three peaks) that geologists believe could have erupted perhaps more than 100,000 years ago. The peaks however had been exuding volcanic gases for years.
    Now come November 2009 and the mighty Kilimanjaro is expected to explode in thunderous torrents spew out boiling rivers of molten rocks, thick gases, volcanic ash and solid rocks all around the vicinity at a radius of over 200 kilometers.
    Massive rivers tumultuous outpouring of red hot lava gushing down its slopes burning practically everything in the area including forests, plants and thousands of households. The fear is the explosion may annihilate local townships such as Marangu, Himo, Njia-panda, Mkuu-Rombo and even Moshi Municipality itself.
    Other towns on the Kenyan' side of the border may also be in danger: Illassit, Oloitokitok, Entarara, Rombo and Kimana areas could end up buried under tons of magma-turned lava.

    Here is the complete article, Mt. Kilimanjaro is not exploding, this will be some sort of simulation to drill emergency services. The way it was written is very irresponsible, one has to read through most of the first half of the article to understand that there will be no explosion and this is a planned test of evacuation services. Kilimanjaro has been dormant for over 100,000 years!

    The above piece has several things wrong, Kilimanjaro is a volcanic mountain with signs of volcanic activities in the distant past, so it is not accurate to say it has never exploded before.

    In addition Kilimanjaro is not the second highest mountain in the world, the second highest mountain is K2 which is in the Himalaya ranges.In fact Kilimanjaro is not in the list of the highest 109 mountains.For the list of the highest mountains see the link below

    [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_mountains[/ame]

    However, Kilimanjaro is the highest free standing mountain in the world (not in a range like the Himalayas or The Alps)

    Tanzania: Awe! Mt Kilimanjaro May 'Explode' in November

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Arusha - Mount Kilimanjaro is likely to explode in volcanic outburst next November. Soldiers serving with military forces of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi are warming up to combat the disaster.

    Kilimanjaro which is Africa's highest peak and the world's second highest mountain has never exploded before. The predicted eruption that may occur in six-months from now, is set to affect millions of people living around the gigantic feature. It will be a historical happening and major disaster!

    Lives and properties will be lost due to explosion, experts have warned that areas such as Marangu, Machame, Himo and Moshi on the other hand will possibly disappear for good.

    Mt. Kilimanjaro is the highest point on African continent reaching 5,895 meters (19,340 feet) above sea level, tall enough to maintain a permanent snow cap despite being just 330 kilometers (210 miles) south of the equator.

    It is also the tallest free-standing mountain on the Earth's land surface, rising about 4,600 meters (15,000 feet) above the surrounding plain. Kilimanjaro is a triple volcano (has three peaks) that geologists believe could have erupted perhaps more than 100,000 years ago. The peaks however had been exuding volcanic gases for years.

    Now come November 2009 and the mighty Kilimanjaro is expected to explode in thunderous torrents spew out boiling rivers of molten rocks, thick gases, volcanic ash and solid rocks all around the vicinity at a radius of over 200 kilometers.

    Massive rivers tumultuous outpouring of red hot lava gushing down its slopes burning practically everything in the area including forests, plants and thousands of households. The fear is the explosion may annihilate local townships such as Marangu, Himo, Njia-panda, Mkuu-Rombo and even Moshi Municipality itself.

    Other towns on the Kenyan' side of the border may also be in danger: Illassit, Oloitokitok, Entarara, Rombo and Kimana areas could end up buried under tons of magma-turned lava.

    The predicted Kilimanjaro eruption is just a fictional setting, an orchestrated drama to be part of the five-state army Military drill to mark the 10th anniversary of the revived East African Community.

    A joint military rescue operations made up of armies from Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Kenya and Host Tanzania will be expected to evacuate people living around Mt. Kilimanjaro as disaster strikes.

    Just as well, because in reality it may take five military forces to accomplish the feat the mostly remote thick-forested area is inhabited by millions and the roads are not exactly at their best.

    Arusha will be the base from which the army teams are to operate from. Arusha apparently will also be the host of the East African Community's 10th Anniversary ceremonies set to be the biggest events this year.

    Dr. John Eudes Ruhangisa, a senior official with the Arusha based EAC secretariat said the event would be marked here on the 20th of November instead of the official date of November 30 because at that time the EA presidents will be attending the Commonwealth Head of States meeting in the Caribbean Islands.

    The preciseness of their prediction (6 months ahead of time?) gave the game away.I do not believe seismologists/ volcanologists are this advanced.

    A couple of google searches revealed that what Mwiba provided was only a part of the full story, whethjer intentional or unintentional the effect was horrifying for a minute, but the sharp antennae of bs detectors went up.

    Cmon people, there is only one first of April per year.

    kwa hiyo hapa tujadili uwezekano wa kutolipuka huu mlima au tunajadili namna ya kuchukua tahadhari?
    ila nashauri watu wa jiolojia watujuze hali halisi

    WOS ni vema tufahamu pia the owners wa Arusha times and all africa. Ninavyofahamu kulikuwa na hot debate kuhusu where should be the hq of the new EAC!!!!!! Many proposals were there kupinga Arusha to be!!!!! So hii inawezekana is a move!!! Ni lazima tujiridhishe vya kutosha kuhusu habari hizi. Rwanda is now advanced katika mambo ya mtandao!!! (ICT, etc!!!!!) and are clever pia, are coming up strongly!!! Of course wako katika kasi ya kuupita kwa ubora Tz kwa mambo mengi!!! Their president ni mzalendo, mpiganaji, his plans are to empower Rwandese in every aspect, especially in soci-econimic matters!!!! You know what I mean when it comes to Tz plans to empower indegionous!!! Let me not shade tears on this!!!!!

    Nilisoma ile habari nusu tu na kuchanganyikiwa ndipo nikakimbilia huku kutoa habari kama tetesi ,kumbe ni drill ya kuwatahadharisha wananchi wasije wakasituka siku wakiona kuna mazingira ya kutatanisha ila inaweza kuwa kweli maana masihara megine hugeuka na kuwa kweli ,afu inabaki kulaumiana. Nasikia kuna watu wameanza kuhama kikwelikweli ,wanasema hakuna masihara na kufa. :D

    Kukubali drill kama hii kwaashiria upungufu katika viongozi na wawakilishi wetu kwenye EAC. Mt Kilimanjaro ni kitegauchumi kikubwa Tz na wengi wamejitahidi kutunyang'anya maslahi yake kwa mbinu nyingi. Sasa hili lalenga kuwajenga hofu watalii hasa kwa kuliweka kipindi ambacho ndo msimu wenyewe wa mavuno. Jingine ni kuwajenga hofu wewekezaji wa muda mrefu ili wakimbilie Nairobi na kwingineko kwa hofu ya mlipuko ambao hautegemewi.
    Volkano ya Mlima kilimanjaro ni 'extinct' kutokana na Kibo kubaki mdomo wazi ikipumua na hivyo kuzuia kujengeka mlipuko kama ambavyo ingetokea kama mjivu yangeuziba mdomo. Yamebadilika haya? Bado wawakilishi na viongozi wetu hawajawa makini na tabu ni kule kuangalia maslahi binafsi ya sasa tu!

    Kilimanjaro Exploding is a pipe dream.This is a giant dormant mountain and it has been that way for millions of years.
    Volcanic structure ya mlima huu hauruhusu kitu kama hicho kutokea, makala imeandikwa na jamaa with an intent to thrill!!!

    Kilimanjaro last erupted around 100,000 years ago according to geological data collected from rocks around the mountain. It is more extinct than dormant.
