Witches flying broomsticks in Swaziland above 150 metres will be subject to arrest and a hefty fine of R500 000, civil aviation authorities said, according to a report.

Witches’ broomsticks are considered similar to any heavier-than-air transportation device that is airborne, reports The Star.

“A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the [150-metre] limit,” Civil Aviation Authority marketing and corporate affairs director Sabelo Dlamini told the newspaper.

No penalties exist for witches flying below 150 metres.

I wonder if the witches were allowed to wear skirts while flying on brooms ...

I'll keep that in mind next time I am flying my broom over Africa.

A witch on a broom, isn't that part of European culture? Do they mix their superstition with pop culture?

I heard about a witch, from the other day, got fined because one of the running lights on his broom was out. That wasn't you, Darkwind, was it?

Good idea, will start a new religion, :tu:  but not sure if we need to be worshipping the god of the vacuum cleaner or push for a 150metre  limit on it?

please advise before I finish writing the book/ bibbly.
