South African universities set to offer witchcraft in their school curriculum.
If news making the rounds is anything to go by, then students will now have a chance to get an education on witchcraft.
According to Live Monitor, plans to include witchcraft into university curriculums, have been announced by the South African minister of higher education and training, Mr Blade Nzimande.
According to Nzimande, the classes which will commence from 2018, is aimed at learning skills which are peculiar to people who practice witchcraft.
Addressing student union representatives from across the country, he said:
“There is a lot we can learn from witchcraft, like how they fly in that winnowing basket. Imagine if we learn that skill. It will eradicate traffic jams and everyone will just get in their basket and fly. It also means we will not be importing fuel anymore.”

Nzimande also reportedly asked popular witches to book and keep appointments with his office, where there skills would be tested to determine which ones would be hired as lecturers. He also reportedly invited witches from outside South Africa, with a promise of permanent residency.
“I spoke to Gibs (Minister of Home affairs Malusi Gigaba) and he agreed to issue witches from outside South Africa with permanent residence permits. I heard Malawi and Zimbabwe have an impressive collection of witches. We are hoping they will heed the call.”
The student representatives were said to have booed him after his speech, because they had assumed he would reduce their increasing school fees.
Applications into the department is said to be closing at midnight on September 30. There is currently an opening for 109 witches.
