It would seem that the way it is written that the author wants the reader to like Lawino better. After all, her husband replaces her with a white woman and turns his back on their traditional African ways. But an argument could be made for Ocol as well since he sees the 'writing on the wall' and is realizing that in order to survive in this new environment that one has to assimilate somewhat to the dominant culture.
