NEW PODCAST: Be inspired and motivated by the story of Samkelo Radebe

In the Survivors series of podcasts, we present four stories of survival, that chart four individuals’ journey back to wellness. They have faced physical and emotional trials that seem unimaginable. But each one has found their way through the trauma, and come to a place of healing, and better understanding.

Imagine being electrocuted at an early age, waking up in agony in hospital, and having your parents tell you the doctors have to amputate your hands in order to save your life. That’s what happened to Samkelo Radebe at the age of nine.

Years on, he tells us about his journey to becoming a successful paralympian medallist and his recent admission as an attorney to the High Court.
