Lake Victoria was formed through warping. As tectonic forces affected East Africa, it is believed that as the west and eastern parts of East Africa were being uplifted through faulting, the central parts underwent down warping resulting into the formation of a basin. Rivers that were flowing west and Eastwards reversed and started powering into Lake Victoria basin hence forming a lake.
