..., the Kavirondo Gulf (Fig. 2). From there it is a well- marked graben between a steep northern wall, the Nyando Escarpment with the Uasin Gishu Plateau beyond, and a more gentle southern margin rising towards the Kericho Plateau. The rift floor is at about 1300 m and the shoulders 1900 m in this section. Further...

.... In western Kenya the volcanoes are associated with the transverse Kavirondo rift. The Kisingiri volcano, to the west, has been eroded to reveal an older complex of intrusive ijolite, uncompahgrite, carbonatite and fenite, pierced by the later pyroclastic vent of Rangwa. This nephelinitic volcano is truncated...

... of the East African Plateau (EAP). Arguments in support of such a surface in East Africa are (1) Miocene volcanic flows (e.g. Yatta Plateau) and lake deposits in the Kavirondo Gulf of Lake Victoria covering this erosional surface sculpted into basement rocks; (2) the volcanic rocks related to the regions...
