The Green Kalahari is a district in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, bordering onto Namibia and Botswana. Previously known as Siyanda (meaning "we are growing"), the district was renamed "ZF Mgcawu District Municipality" in 2013 after Upington's first post-1994 democratically elected mayor, Zwelentlanga Fatman Mgcawu.
