A med­dling mother

Hilda and Oubaas are bring­ing Moekie to 7de Laan streets.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

7de Laan Week­day SABC2 (*192) 18:00

7de Laan has had a run­ning theme since start­ing in 2000: there are a cou­ple of char­ac­ter who’re spo­ken about but never seen. Swan­nie the butcher, Evelina the Wel­man fam­ily’s house­keeper and many more. But none match up to Oubaas’s (Pierre van Plet­zen) mother Moekie, who gets joy from giv­ing her daugh­ter-in-law Hilda (An­nelisa Wei­land) more grey hairs. But if those foot­steps on Fri­day 18 Au­gust are to be be­lieved, Moekie could be mak­ing her long-awaited ap­pear­ance!

STEPPING ON TOES

There’s ten­sion in the house af­ter Moekie ar­rived unan­nounced on Fri­day 11 Au­gust. Not only did she re-ar­range the en­tire flat, she ac­cused Hilda of de­lib­er­ately giv­ing her food poi­son­ing on Wed­nes­day 16 Au­gust. Ac­tress Mari Nieu­woudt, who is play­ing Moekie, tells us that “she knows in her heart that her scrawny daugh­ter-in-law has no idea how to be a home­maker and this has an­noyed her for years. Mari has to date been the voice of her un­seen char­ac­ter but now she re­ally gets to be in Moekie’s shoes.

But this time, Moekie’s over­step­ping the bound­aries – she’s in­ter­fer­ing in Hilda’s life di­rectly and not just over the phone. On Thurs­day 17 Au­gust, Hilda vents to her friends at Op­piekoffie about how an­noy­ing her mother-in­law is and how much of a mommy’s boy her hubby is. “Moekie has never been fond of Hilda and re­fused to even come to their wed­ding be­cause this ‘silly city girl’ would keep her son away from their fam­ily home Ron­dom­skrik,” laughs Mari. And it’s go­ing to get worse: on Fri­day 18 Au­gust, Oubaas sum­mons the lo­cal dom­i­nee (Div de Vil­liers) to help heal the rift be­tween the women in his life.

Life is get­ting worse for Hilda and Oubaas.
