BTN (is Africa going to split)

Facts- Africa’s recent cracks suggests alarming news- Africa may be starting to split into two. After heavy rainfall huge cracks appeared, supporting the fact that due to the huge fault line through the middle it may split into two in 50-100 million years. It’s more than 15 meters deep and 15 meters wide. It’s growing at a rate of 2.5 centimetres. Rifts like these are the beginning of continental breakup so this theory is very plausible. 

Questions- Are there any rifts like this in Australia?  Could Australia break apart?

Understanding- I know understand that continental drift is always happening and that fault lines and tectonic plates are very connected to continental drift.
