Why is it that when one dies, that is when everyone shows concern and the willingness to be associated with you?
Case in point, the recently deceased comedian Othuol Othuol.
A screenshot that went viral on social media over the weekend shows the deceased pleading for financial aid with a friend in the last days of his life.
Apparently, the ”friend” only saw Othuol’s message asking for a sh15,0000 contribution after his demise.
The worst part is, he or she went ahead to reply to the text…How do you fail to reply to a living person’s message, only to reply to it when they are dead? Do they have phones in heaven?
Now, Othuol’s friends have planned a grand send-off set cost about sh1 million. Talk about misplaced priorities.
Come on people, where were these millions when your pal was alive and in actual need of them?
The greatest irony in life is that you only matter to people when you are dead. Rest in peace Othuol.
