Retired broadcaster Jay Sonza says Cocoy Dayao is “kinakapatid” of ABS-CBN/TFC America reporter, nephew of Batangas-based priest

In case you’ve missed it, the name Cocoy Dayao has been the buzzword on social media lately after it was exposed as the admin of anti-Duterte Facebook page “Silent No More”.

If you’d recall, the Facebook page “Silent No More” has been posting negative posts on social media against President Duterte, making it the most hated page among the Duterte supporters.

But the latest blog post of “Silent No More” pitting 7 senators who failed to affix their signatures to the Pangilinan senate resolution condemning extra-judicial killings versus the Liberal Party senators has been the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back.

But thanks to bloggers Sass Rogando Sasot and RJ Nieto aka “Thinking Pinoy” who did an excellent investigative journalistic work in unmasking the man behind the controversial Facebook page “Silent No More” and the blog, Pinoy Ako Blog which he vehemently denied.

But who is Cocoy Dayao really?

The Facebook post of retired broadcaster and journalist Jay Sonza should give us an insight as to the connections of Cocoy Dayao to the mainstream media and the church.

“COCOY DAYAO”

Siya na siguro ang pinakasikat na tao ngayon sa bansa. Ito ay matapos mabunyag na siya umano ang taong nasa likod ng halos lahat ng mga social media sites na sinasabing nasa likod ng mga paninira kay G. Rodrigo Duterte at mga kaalyadong pulitikal ng pangulo ng bansa.

Bilang isang dating journalist, natawag ang aking pansin at minabuti kung alamin kung sino nga itong COCOY DAYAO na ito. I wanted to know who this person is. Ano ba ang background nitong mama at ano ang kanyang motivation bakit nasasangkot siya dito sa sunod-sunod na hakbang upang pabagsakin ang Duterte Administration.

My usual reportorial skills were summoned. I started asking around my neighborhood. Baka sakaling may nakakakilala sa kanya. I activated my news sources, both from overt and covert world. Given na iyong mga information na si “Cocoy” ay konektado sa mga dating nanirahan sa Malacanang at mga kapanalig ni Mr. Noynoy Aquino.

Akala ko ay mahihirapan akong tuklasin kung sino nga itong bright boy na ito, who allegedly handled the cyber bullying of the president by way of spreading concocted information and “fake news” by his lonesome (which is next to impossible).

Sus Ginoo, ang laki tanga ko pala kung nagkataon na hindi ko nabuklat iyong mga old files ko. At dahil Linggo ngayon, I had all the time to check on pictures, manuscripts and notepads which I kept for posterity sake. Heto ang nadiskubre ko!

Si “Cocoy” pala ay iyong kaisa-isang anak ng kumare kong si Angelita Mojares Dayao na matagal nanirahan sa Project 6, Quezon City.Siya iyong naging katuwang ko sa binyag ng anak ng yumaong Cesar Nucum (yes, Kuya Cesar, the late broadcaster na sumikat dahil sa bagal magsalita sa radio/ABS-CBN) na si Nino (he is now connected with ABS-CBN/TFC America). Oo Nino, kinakapatid mo pala itong si Cocoy.

Kaya pala noong nakita ko iyong litrato ng mama sa facebook, sabi ko looks familiar. Siya nga si EDWARD ” Cocoy” DAYAO! Ang anak ni Mareng Angelita ko. Hinanap ko agad aking kumare, Dati kasi ang bahay nito ay malapit lang bahay ng best friend kong sina Domeng (birthday niya ngayon) at Linda Cordova, Sa kasamaang palad wala na sila doon at balita ko ay lumayas at mukhang nagkaroon ng problema dahil sa negosyo o pera. If you know what I mean.

Anyways, napag-alaman ko na lumipat sila sa Lipa City, Batangas. Hindi naman ako nagtaka dahil alam kong may kapatid na pari ang aking kumare. Si Fr. Francis Mojares ay nakadestino kung hindi ako nagkakamali sa bayan ng Taal. May kapatid siyang duktora at may-ari sila ng ospital doon.

As to the motivation of Cocoy, wait lang, susubukan kong alamin.
