28 - Saul Molobi on Adapting to Travelling with a Disability

Lois Strachan speaks with Saul Molobi who shares his story about his first overseas trip as a traveller with a disability. Saul is a businessman, entrepreneur and also involved in radio. He has experience as a public servant, having worked for government in marketing & communications, and has also served as a diplomat.

Saul became disabled 3 years ago as a result of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a rare disorder where a person's immune system attacks their nervous system.
