I would have paid to watch this on TV :laugh:

A competition pitting witchdoctors against each other in a battle of skills this weekend in eSwatini - formerly known as Swaziland - has been banned, according to a government statement.
"Government will not sanction any competition of that nature. Anyone who will persist with any activity related to witchcraft will face the full might of the law."

The statement, released on Tuesday, said the Witchcraft Act of 1889 defines witchcraft, sorcery or the practice of voodoo as a punishable offence.

"The proposed competition of witchcraft and magic spells was unheard of in the country and it was regarded as an anomaly in the lives of the people of eSwatini," government spokesman Percy Simelane said in a statement.
"Government cannot sit back and watch while the lives of the citizens of this country are exposed to illegal and weird practices that have the potential to poison the minds of (Swazi people), especially children," Simelane added.
Fair statement by government
