That one time on Egoli when Nenna and Elsa ate weed cookies

Do you remember that one time Nenna and Elsa ate weed cookies by accident on Egoli: Place of Gold? Well thank you internet for the trip down memory lane, and the laughs!


Johannesburg, South Africa – A Facebook page celebrating one of South Africa’s first and longest running “soap series” posted a hilarious scene which social media can’t get enough of!

Egoli: Place of Gold was a bilingual (English and Afrikaans) South African soap opera which first aired on M-Net on the 6th April 1992. The series was set in Johannesburg, which is sometimes referred to as Egoli.

“It was South African television’s first daily soap opera, and on the 3rd of December 1999 Egoli became the first South African television program in any genre to reach 2,000 episodes. As of the 3rd of August 2007, 4,000 episodes had aired and Egoli’s aired its final episode on 31 March 2010, after 18 years of acting from South African and international actors.”

The hilarious video which was recently posted to the Facebook group shows “Ester Nenna Willemse” played by Shaleen Surtie-Richards and “Elsa Du Plessis Pienaar” played by Hannah Botha in a ridiculously funny scene where they eat cannabis cookies by accident.
