PATRICIA de Lille’s sister, Cynthia Jeffreys, has dumped the Good party and joined Gayton McKenzie’s Patriotic Alliance.

Jeffreys was one of the 50 members who defected to the Patriotic Alliance yesterday and were welcomed by McKenzie himself.

Jeffreys said she loved her sister but wanted to be her own person and move on with her life.

“I have worked with my sister when she founded Independen­t Democrats, then we moved to the DA together. We started Good together but I felt I was always overlooked for positions just because I am family a member. I have been a volunteer but unfortunat­ely loyalty does not pay bills.”

De Lille hit back and said her sister received a stipend. “You know I fought for freedom so I would not have a problem when my sister or anyone chooses the political party of his or her choice.”
