|Republic of Zambia|
President of Zambia
Zambia, officially the Republic of Zambia, is a country in southern Africa and was one of two countries that the Global Defense Initiative built up an offensive and swarmed over it and Zimbabwe not to let the Nod forces capture them and leaving the Advanced Communications Center exposed with the security codes for GDI's Ion Cannon superweapon. The neighbouring countries are the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west.
History[edit | edit source]
Originally inhabited by Khoisan peoples, the region which comprises modern Zambia was colonised during the Bantu expansion of the thirteenth century. After visits by European explorers in the eighteenth century, Zambia became the British protectorate of Northern Rhodesia towards the end of the nineteenth century. For most of the colonial period, the country was governed by an administration appointed from London with the advice of the British South Africa Company.
On 24 October 1964, the country became independent of the United Kingdom and then-prime minister Kenneth Kaunda became the inaugural president. Kaunda's socialist United National Independence Party (UNIP) maintained power from the 1964 until 1991. From 1972 to 1991 Zambia was a single-party state with the UNIP as the sole-legal political party, with the goal of uniting the nation under the banner of 'One Zambia, One Nation'. Kaunda was succeeded by Frederick Chiluba of the social-democratic Movement for Multi-Party Democracy in 1991, during which the country saw a rise in social-economic growth and increased decentralisation of government.
First Tiberium War[edit | edit source]
In the late middle of the entire First Tiberium War, the Hero of Egypt was sent by Kane to steal some security codes for GDI's Ion Cannon and hijack it against their own creators and destroy a major site belonging to the Global Defense Initiative. Meanwhile after the loss of millions in defence and civil forces, President Robert Fielding from the United States of America strategically called on Zambia's President that his country will be invaded by an offensive of the GDI Botswanan Commander's order to prevent an invasion of the country by Nod forces coming from Zaire, Tanzania, Mozambique, Namibia and Angola. After the codes were taken, the Brotherhood destroyed all GDI forces and invaded Zambia leaving a surrendered President to be in power at Lusaka, the Zambian captial city until the end of the war.
