Botswana is divided into 15 administrative districts: 9 rural districts and 6 urban districts. (http://www.laws.gov.bw/) These are administered by 15 local authorities (district councils, city councils or town councils). (http://www.mlg.gov.bw/) Until 2006, Chobe and Ngamiland Districts shared the same local authority, the North-West District Council.
