Forget Bro Ocholla, this is the real sinner
By Elphas Lagat
My Twitter timeline has been hot since Tuesday, thanks to an unlucky man named Bro Ocholla and his social media gaffe.
To say the lad was massively ridiculed would be the understatement of the century. Tweeps are literally frying the guy! To be fair, some of the jokes are quite funny.
But as I continue reading the tweets I realize there is a new twist to the story. The corporate world has decided to “trendjack” the conversation. Bakeries, airlines and even oil manufactures have decided to use Ocholla’s predicament to market their products.
Courtesy of Bro Ocholla “slip of the fingers”, these brands are now enjoying massive visibility online.
Want to fly over cloud nine? Well look no further because Ocholla has managed to pull an abracadabra on flights. Now there are ridiculous offers available. You can comfortably book a flight at a cheaper price owing to Ocholla’s revelation of what he does within the confines of his bedroom.

Jokes and opportunism aside, this Embakasi prayer Cell has the reincarnation of Judas Iscariot! What happened to ‘brotherly love’? Or have we decided to go the way of Cain and Abel?
What, pray tell, makes it right for the prayer group member to share a screenshot of the WhatsApp mishap? Some have suggested that the ‘snitch’ had only good intentions at heart: that he/she was asking others to pray for Bro Ocholla’s troubled soul. Prayer items can be raised without screenshots, no?
Exposing a brother’s bedroom matters to the whole world sounds not so…um… unbrotherly.
If you ask me, the holier-than-thou brother (probably a choir leader) who exposed Ocholla deserves a rather hot spot in hades for his betrayal.
He’s a Grade A hypocrite, far much worse than the biblical Pharisees, for exposing the shenanigans that took place in that church WhatsApp page.
My question to the ‘Holy Joe’ prosecutor: What happened to helping a brother when he falls?
Just so that you know no one is absolutely clean. We do not know what you all do behind doors.
Before you accuse me of being an unspiritual chap, take a keen look as to what John 8:7 says: “When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, ‘Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.’”
Forget Bro Ocholla! The person we should all be looking for is that Judas!
