Sisi ni waafrika. Je, tunajua nini kuhusu bara Afrika? Ni continent ya pili kwa ukubwa duniani. Ina madini kibao, maziwa, kuna nchi zenye rutuba, na nchi zenye ukame. Kuna nchi 53. Pia Afrika ina sifa nyingi zaidi. Wanasema kuwa binadamu wa kwanza walitokea bara Afrika, hivyo kila mtu dunia hii (hata wazungu) ana asili ya Afrika.

Leo jiulize unajua nini kuhusu bara letu Afrika.

Africa is the world's second-largest and second most-populous continent, after Asia. At about 30.2 million km² (11.7 million sq mi) including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of the Earth's total surface area, and 20.4% of the total land area.[2] With about 922 million people (as of 2005)[3] in 61 territories, it accounts for about 14.2% of the world's human population.

The continent is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and the Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. There are 46 countries including Madagascar, and 53 including all the island groups.

Africa, particularly central eastern Africa, is widely regarded within the scientific community to be the origin of humans and the Hominidae tree (great apes), as evidenced by the discovery of the earliest hominids and their possible ancestors, as well as later ones that have been dated to around seven million years ago – including Sahelanthropus tchadensis, Australopithecus africanus, A. afarensis, Homo erectus, H. habilis and H. ergaster – with the earliest Homo sapiens (human) found in Ethiopia being dated to ca. 200,000 years ago.[4]

Africa straddles the equator and encompasses numerous climate areas; it is the only continent to stretch from the northern temperate to southern temperate zones.[5] Because of the lack of natural regular precipitation and irrigation as well as glaciers or mountain aquifer systems, there is no natural moderating effect on the climate except near the coasts.

Hoja nzuri sana Chemi.

Sasa kwanini bara hili ni masikini sana hapa Duniani? Je Mungu alitupa rahana au ni ufinyu wa akili zatu au Wazungu wameisha tudanganya ki saikologia kwamba hatuwezi kuendelea.

Naomba mawazo yenu maana hiki kitu kinanikela sana
