    Included a link to a reputable news site (the CNN of South Africa) carrying the story as well so as to make any sense to anybody reading this post

    Sounds reasonable to me. A witch has a much larger mass than a goose or duck and could cause much more mayhem if sucked into an engine of an aircraft making its final descent. And that's not taking into account the damage the broomstick could do either.

    Perhaps someone needs to tell Harry Potter to pass the word around at Hogwarts. He could use an owl to deliver memos to all the other students. So long as the owl isn't a big one and flying at above 150m in restricted airspace, I suppose.

    However, witchcraft isn't a joking matter in Swaziland.
    Hm, I thought everything was a joking matter in Swaziland. I stand corrected.

    Swaziland is independent, not part of South Africa. Would be better off if it was.

    The country is governed, in a manner of speaking, by Africa's last all-powerful monarch. A constitution and a parliament of sorts do exist. But, via a combination of rampant corruption, stunning incompetence, and meek deference to the royal will, Swaziland has become a failed state waiting to happen. Among other attributes, it has the highest HIV rate on the planet.
