This is the part of the article that stood out for me
Urbanus Botha, who doesn’t spend much time in front of computers, at first thought it might be a weather balloon from De Aar, but couldn’t get through to the weather office
Typical SA Government department?

I love the farmer's maak 'n plan idea for the balloon:

“The enormous piece of plastic took up the whole of my sheep trailer,” said Botha, who thought it might come in handy when painting.

Maybe. With a kettie..
Friend of mines dad used to farm ostriches in the Karoo.
He had cops pitch up at his farm after shooting at tome idiot in a single engine plane that was buzzing the ostriches.

space aliens!

The google logo is just a coverup. The aliens from Roswell are now between Strydenburg and Britstown. They're from the planet urbanus.
