Background:

The broad NE-SW-trending Nyambeni shield volcano is capped by numerous phonolitic cumulodomes and basaltic cones and lava flows of late-Pleistocene to Holocene age (Hackman et al., 1989). The basaltic cinder cones are the youngest features of Nyambeni Hills volcano. They are clustered in a NE-trending belt along the crest of the shield, in a N-S-trending area including the Mula Hills, and in the Giaki area.
