It appears that Botswana does not use company registration numbers, but only register businesses by their name (http://www.gov.bw/en/Business/Sub-audiences/Small--Medium-Businesses/Company--Business-Name-Registration/#a35fb00617eb47dd93b0193e9d5eb0d4).
I am marking this dataset's existence as "unsure" based on my criteria which is that some information is available, but not enough to qualify.
