Listen to article

Mr Alalzuuga said disability was not inability because any physically challenged person had the potentials to contribute to the development of the country when given the chance.

He told the GNA in an interview that there was the need to enforce the disability law to restore their dignity and motivate them to actively participate fully in decision-making.

He urged estate developers, planners and contractors to make all private and public buildings disable friendly and gave the assurance that he would ensure that all buildings in his district would be friendly to PWDs to allow them take part in serving the district.

Mr Alalzuuga said about 12 new disability friendly infrastructural facilities including health, education among others had been provided by the assembly in various parts of the district.

He hinted that government was committed to championing the cause of promoting the rights of PWDs, because they had been left behind for a long time with excuses from policy makers and members of the public that they were vulnerable.

Mr Alalzuuga called on the general public not to see them as nuisance in society but as resourceful members who could help in the development of the community.
