“Some might find it easy to condemn the recent move in Zimbabwe to pull “witch doctors” closer into the mainstream by allowing them to grant sick notes to ailing workers. The move follows legislation passed this past July finally getting rid of colonial laws that illegalized the age old institutions of witchcraft on the premise that they were pagan and primitive superstitions.”
