Swaziland: High-flying witches brought down to earth
HIGH-FLYING witches face arrest and a heavy fine if they break new laws, authorities in Swaziland have said.
Airspace rules in the southern African country have been tightened – and witches who fly above 150 metres face a R500,000 (£35,487) penalty.
Sabelo Dlamini, an official at the Swazi civil aviation authority said: “A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the [150 metre] limit.”
“I’m over the moon about the new laws.” said a Swazi official. “No, wait, I didn’t mean…oh, shit.”
