Meet 21-year-old Boy Who Can’t Speak, Eats Grass, Stays In The Jungle Zanzimana Ellie was born after his parents knelt down before God and asking for the gift of a son

There’s a video that was released by ‘Afrimax Rwanda’ on YouTube three days ago in which the life of a special boy and raised by animals was made public.

The story details that in the rural areas of Rwanda, there lives a young man whose life from the date of birth is still a mystery to many. 

Born in 1999, the 21-year-old boy whose facial appearance closely takes after an African chimpanzee has been a subject of mocking, bullying and he’s always ridiculed by a majority of his village mates.

But his life on earth has all been a miracle as explained by his mother.

In the video, his mother told the narrator that her child whose name is Zanzimana Ellie was born after she and her husband knelt down before God and asking for the gift of a son.

She had given birth to five children who perished one after the another and it got her and her husband really worried.

For their sixth child who turned out to be Ellie, the mother and father asked God for even an “abnormal child as long as he/she wouldn’t die.”

Nine months later she gave birth to Ellie who appeared to be mysterious from the first day.

Ellie was born a really tiny baby with a small head and doctors assured her that she’ll end up having trouble raising the kid.

For the mother and her husband, they didn’t mind encountering trouble as long as the child would live to adulthood.

The doctors seemed to have predicted it right because 21 years after his birth, Ellie doesn’t speak because he can’t, his head can’t support formal education and he likes living in the jungle and running everywhere all the time.

His mother even revealed that she feeds him grass like an animal and will always have to chase after him to bring him home when evening comes.

He’s never been to a class and would probably live that way unless a good samaritan turns up to train him to cope with normal humans.
