Zanziman Ellie of Rwanda suffers from microcephaly, a condition that causes a baby to be born with a much smaller head than normal. As a result, Ellie is unable to communicate properly and suffers from learning disabilities. Schools in Rwanda refused to admit him because he lacked the mental capacity to learn like other children.

What factors contribute to microcephaly? Prenatal infections, such as Zika virus, chickenpox, rubella, toxoplasma, and cytomegalovirus, are frequently responsible for congenital conditions. A mother may give birth to a child with microcephaly due to genetic mutations, substance abuse, poor nutrition, or exposure to toxic chemicals.

Genetic mutations, traumatic brain injury, a lack of oxygen to the brain, and brain infection can all cause the condition to manifest after the child is born. Children with microcephaly are typically dwarfed, have facial deformities, vision and hearing problems, and have seizures. Mothers are advised to seek medical advice from specialists in order to manage the unique condition.

In February 2020, Afrimax TV shared the 22-year-old boy’s extraordinary story on YouTube. His mother revealed that villagers frequently referred to him as a monkey.

He used to run away from home to go for a walk in the jungle and eat grass, and his mother would go looking for him in the evening to bring him home.

Following the airing of the touching documentary, Afrimax TV set up a GoFundMe fundraiser, and millions of viewers from all over the world contributed money to give him a better life.

He returned home, and the donations enabled him to attend the Ubumwe Community Center in Gisenyi, Rwanda, a special school. The Rwandan Tarzan was also transported to a different city, where he met other children with disabilities.
