Zambia Quake?

Normally a 5.2 quake is not news and one in a relatively unpopulated area would not be news for most outlets but this one is news. Zambia is well away from any plate boundaries and in the area where this quake happened there have only been 3 quakes since the 70’s.

What makes it interesting is this is Africa and not that far from the great rift valley. Everything here is something to add to the pile and think about..
