Botswana, officially the Republic of Botswana, is a country land-locked located in Southern Africa. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. Its border with Zambia to the north near Kazungula is poorly defined but at most is a few hundred meters long.

First Tiberium War

Despite the assassination of Dr. Wong Hu Chan, GDI still managed to complete development of their orbital superweapon. Having realized the power of the Ion Cannon, Kane formulated a plan to turn the superweapon against its creators. In order to do this however, he would need to steal the cannon's security codes from a GDI base with an Advanced Communications Center.

The GDI had launched a major offensive through Botswana on Zambia and Zimbabwe and as the 'pincers' of the Nod assault closed in on Botswana to stop them an opportunity had finally arisen for Nod to capture the Advanced Communications Center at Ghanzi. Kane chose none other than the Nod hero of Egypt for this task as none other could be relied upon for a task of this importance.

When Nod forces arrived in the Ghanzi area they found themselves in a less than idea location for a base, a craggy area entirely devoid of Tiberium. The GDI had wisely placed two Mammoth tanks blocking the bridge over a river which led to a Tiberium field. But despite their initial disadvantages Nod forces were able to build up a sufficiant force to overcome the GDI bases defenses and one of their Engineers took control of the Advanced Communications Center within the base. Having done so they were able to retrieve the security codes and relay them to the Nod command in complete secrecy.

The capture of the Advanced Communications Center not only gave Nod access to the security codes but it also struck at the central communications apparatus of the GDI forces in Botswana. Without it they were thrown into disarray and Nod forces swiftly defeated them and gain control over all of Botswana saving Nod Zimbabwe and Zambia from GDI reconquest.

By 2047, Botswana become a Yellow Zone.
