Swaziland Limits Height Witches Can Fly
People criticize the Maine Legislature for tackling minor bills rather than dealing with the major issues like the budget, hospital payback etc. They've dealt with bars opening on St. Patrick's Day at 6 AM on a Sunday, the State Dessert, the State Treat. All of that doesn't hold a candle to the latest law issued by the legislature in Swaziland.
As a bit of background, Swaziland is an African State, that believes in witchcraft and black magic. 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."
No charges are planned for airborne witches who keep below the 150-metre 'ceiling' and there's no mention how the Swazi civil aviation authority plans on enforcing this rule.
