How The Lifestyle Of The Boy Who Was Called “Monkey” Has Changed After His Story Went Viral

When Eli's story was first broadcast by Afrimax, he couldn't stand the sight of others. Whenever a stranger approached him, he would run in the forest and the mother would run after him.

His neighbors called him a monkey just because most of the time he was in the forest climbing trees. They were beating I'm up and making fun of him and his mother because there was nothing they could do.

Eli is not only popular in Tanzania, but around the world, and now whenever he leaves home people follow him to take pictures with him. His fashion style has also evolved and he now wears some of the most fashionable clothes. Here is a little preview of what you will see.

Zanzimana Elly's birth was the result of her mother kneeling down before God and pleading for any child given to her, as long as they lived. Even a crippled child, she prayed. then she prayed to God for one, and he provided her with Zanzimana Elly. It was after she had four children, all of whom were tragically dead in no time.

When Elly was 22, his facial features were said to be similar to those of an African chimpanzee. He couldn't speak and his head couldn't take formal education.

According to his mother, he ate grass like an animal and will have to be hunted by his father if he ever shows up.

When Afrimax first met this family, they were struggling to find food, with no prospects for the future. They started a fundraising campaign on gofundme.com, and many people contributed.

Elly was then escorted to a special school for disabled children and given a new, fully furnished house. What do you think of his transformation.
