A REAL-Life Mowgli lives in the African jungle and hikes 20 miles a day to escape cruel villagers who harass him for being “different”.
But Zanziman’s infatuated mother Ellie, 21, viewed him as a “miracle” after losing her first five children in Rwanda, East Africa.

A poignant video describes how she and her husband were so upset that their children were dying that they kneeled and implored “God for a son,” writes Zolex.
The couple even asked for an “abnormal child as long as it did not die.”
Nine months later, Ellie was born in 1999 with microcephaly, a condition in which a baby’s head is much smaller than expected.
Unfortunately, life has been a struggle for the man since then.
He is harassed every day by insensitive villagers because of his facial features, reports Afrimax Rwanda.
During a visit to Ellie’s mother, the station was told that he was always mocked and criticized.
As a result, he has learned to get up on his feet quickly or even to flee high up a tree to escape the constant bullying of the villagers.
Incredibly, Ellie – who has never been to school – spends all day wandering the jungle for hours.
He sometimes covers up to 230 km a week and eats grass while in the jungle, his mother said.
The boy’s mother says in the interview that she has to chase him every evening to bring him home.

She told the station: “I always graze him as an animal and he always runs away.”
Ellie and his mother visited the station to raise awareness and raise awareness for fundraisers for the poverty-stricken family.
His mother told Afrimax that her son cannot speak, but he understands her instructions.
At some point she asks him to fetch a canister lying on the floor.
He immediately ran over and got it for her and asked the reporter to say: This proves he understands what you are telling him. “
Savannah News reports, “After consulting health professionals, we believe the boy has microcephaly, compounded by a lack of understanding and love from the villagers.
“He may not necessarily enjoy living in the jungle, but he seems to be running away from an abusive mob that leads him to do things he doesn’t like.”
Ellie’s mother has looked after her son lovingly over the years, but her circumstances have worsened and it is now difficult for her to support the family.
Afrimax started a fundraiser for GoFundMe to help her put food on the table.
