(USA) Ian Banda is inspiring persons living with disabilities to have self-assurance of working like the able bodied citizens.

In an interview with Pan African Radio’s Correspondent Exhilda Siame in Minnesota, USA, Banda who is pursuing fellowship studies under the auspices of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) said disability is not inability.

Banda said people living with disabilities should not be stigmatized and subjected to all sorts of discrimination because they have the capacity to execute jobs which are exclusively performed by able bodied people.

And Banda, a wheelchair confined resident of Lusaka’s Kanyama Compound, a densely populated residential area west of Zambia’s capital city, Lusaka has urged parents and guardians to take children born with disabilities to school because they are a blessing, such that if embraced and nurtured society will benefit.

Banda has since commended the Zambian government for introducing special needs education teachers in public schools.
