Mysterious life of a 21 Years-old man who Can’t Speak, Eats Grass And Likes Playing In The Jungle [Video]

There’s a video that was released by ‘Afrimax Rwanda‘ on YouTube three days ago in which the life of a specially born and raised boy was brought to the limelight.

The story in the video was that in the rural areas of Rwanda, there lives the above pictured young man whose life from the day he was born up to date has been a mystery.

Born in 1999, the 21 year old boy whose facial appearance closely takes after an African chimpanzee has been a subject of mock, bullying and he’s always being made fun of 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 kneeling down before God and asking for a lasting gift.

That in her life, she had given birth to five children who perished one after the another upon being born and it got her and her husband really worried.

For their sixed 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 after her pregnancy, the mother gave birth to Ellie who appeared to be mysterious from the first day.

That he had been born a really tiny baby with a below average 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 a formal education and he likes life 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 class and would probably live that way unless landing a good samaritan who will train him to cope with normal humans.

Below are screengrabs of Ellie in the video.
