Swaziland has cracked down on all witches caught hovering above 150 meters on their broomsticks, promising to hand out hefty fines to any who break the law.

“A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the [150-metre] limit,” corporate affairs director Sabelo Dlamini told The Star.

While witchcraft has rather fallen down the list of concerns in the western world, it is still very much feared and hated in Africa, where 9 out of 10 people are convinced by the existence 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.

No doubt those in the dark magic community thought that guy was a real son of a witch.
