    Swaziland has launched a crackdown on high-flying witches after banning them from hovering above 150metres.

    It has been a long time since witches were burnt at the stake in Europe but the accusation remains a serious one in the landlocked African country.
    Anyone caught flying their broomstick above the height limit faces arrest and a hefty R500,000 fine, the country’s civil aviation authorities said this week.
    ‘A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the [150-metre] limit,’ corporate affairs director Sabelo Dlamini told The Star. ...

    This is just common sense. After all, would you want witches flying brooms at over 150 meters in altitude?

    I'm going to apply for the job of enforcement officer, for a nice annual salary, and what's more, I won't even have to leave the US to enforce this ban. I personally guarantee that on my watch, no one will fly a broomstick higher than 150 meters, as long as we can keep Hillary out of Swaziland.

    Witchcraft is taken seriously in Swaziland where many people believe in the power of black magic.

    Last year a leading Swazi MP called for a hike in tax paid by witch doctors to help ease the cash-strapped country’s financial woes.
    Oh, so that's why the Swazi gubmint doesn't laugh them off like the rest of us.
    Be Not Afraid.

    No witches want to fly over Swaziland. There are better places to see.

    The British love their witches. It's much better to fly over them, or Amsterdam, where the people will just think it's another of their drug-induced hallucinations.
