Broomstick-flying witches face arrest

Broomstick-flying witches face arrest 1

Aviation authorities in Swaziland have aimed tough penalties at witches caught  flying over 150m.
The bizarre aviation laws highlight the degree to which authorities in the tiny southern African country take witchcraft seriously. Broomsticks used by witches are considered similar to other heavier-than-air transportation devices and anyone caught flying one above 150m will be arrested and subjected to a hefty fine. According to the law, flying below the 150m mark isn’t a problem.
The laws were reiterated following the arrest of private investigator Hunter Shongwe after he was caught flying a toy helicopter with a camera attached to it within Swazi airspace. He was later charged with operating an unregistered aircraft and for failing to appear before his chief to be questioned by authorities.

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.
