Banda, whose mobility is restricted to a wheelchair, noted that his disability is no longer a challenge but a cost because he pays for his wheelchair when embarking on a public service bus.
And Banda says people living with disabilities should not be underrated because they are a blessing adding that he will in the future marry an able bodied woman.
