Broomstick-flying witches have been told to fly low in Swaziland. A new regulation states witches flying broomsticks above 150 metres will be subject to arrest and a hefty R500 000 fine, civil aviation authorities said, according to a report by The Star.

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

"A witch on a broom should not fly above the 150(m) limit" Civil Aviation Authority marketing and corporate affairs director Sabelo Dlamini said to the newspaper.

The regulation also forbids toy helicopters and children’s kites from ascending too high into the country’s airspace.
