to place on Rhodesia. Independence Mugabe and the victorious black nationalists were rather less concerned by Operation Quartz than by the possibility that there might be a mass exodus of the white community of the kind that had caused chaos in Mozambique five years earlier. Such an exodus had been prepared for by the South African government. With the agreement of the British Governor of Rhodesia, South African troops had entered the country to secure the road approaches to the Beit Bridge border crossing point. Refugee camps had been prepared in the Transvaal (Transvaal Province). On the day the election results became known, most white families had prepared contingency plans for flight, including the packing of cars and suitcases. thumb left 200px Gondar Fasilides Castle (File:Gonder.jpg), Ethiopia. Further south in East Africa, during the first millennium AD, Nilotic and Bantu (Bantu languages)-speaking peoples moved into the region (Bantu expansion), and the latter now comprise three-quarters of Kenya's population. Increased trade (namely with Arab merchants) and the development of ports helped birth of Swahili culture. Developed from an outgrowth of indigenous Bantu settlements, African Archaeological Review, Volume 15, Number 3, September 1998 , pp. 199-218(20) the Swahili Coast of Kenya, Tanzania and northern Mozambique was part of the east African region which traded with Persia, China, the Arab world, and India especially for ivory and slaves (slavery). Monomotapa was a medieval kingdom (c. 1250–1629) which used to stretch between the Zambezi and Limpopo (Limpopo River) rivers of Southern Africa in the modern states of Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

The Arabian Peninsula is an ancient massif composed of stable crystalline rock whose geologic structure developed concurrently with the Alps. Geologic movements caused the entire mass to tilt eastward and the western and southern edges to tilt upward. In the valley created by the fault, called the Great Rift, the Red Sea was formed. The Great Rift runs from the Mediterranean along both sides of the Red Sea south through Ethiopia and the lake country of East Africa, gradually disappearing in the area of Mozambique, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. Scientists analyzing photographs taken by United States astronauts on the joint United States-Soviet space mission in July 1975 detected a vast fan-shaped complex of cracks and fault lines extending north and east from the Golan Heights. These fault lines are believed to be the northern and final portion of the Great Rift and are presumed to be the result of the slow rotation of the Arabian Peninsula counterclockwise in a way that will, in approximately 10 million years, close off the Persian Gulf and make it a lake. thumb left 13th century Fakr ad-Din mosque (File:Fakr Ud Din Mosque.jpg) built by Fakr ad-Din, the first Sultan of the Mogadishu Sultanate (Sultanate of Mogadishu).

The century between 1150 and 1250 marked a decisive turn in the role of Islam in Somali history. Following his visit to the city, the 12th century Syrian historian Yaqut al-Hamawi wrote that Mogadishu was inhabited by dark-skinned Berbers, the ancestors of the modern Somalis.
