  • BOTSWANA has been rocked by what appears to be its strongest ever earthquake – just hours after South Africa was also struck.


The earthquake measured 6,5 on the Richter scale – a rare strong quake for Africa.

Strong tremors were also felt in Harare and Bulawayo, the capital and second city of Zimbabwe, as well as in South Africa’s Gauteng region.

It is unknown whether much damage has been caused by the quake, which occurred at around 5.40pm local time (6.40pm GMT) at a depth of around 35km.

Luckily the quake’s epicentre struck an area with few inhabitants.
