In a Facebook Live on Friday evening, Gayton claimed that Kelly “needs professional help.”

“The problem with Kelly is that she is more worried about Boeta than her own child.

“Kelly needs help. I’m going to ask the social workers to intervene. They need help for drug addiction. She refused my help to go to a drug rehab centre.

CALLS FOR DRUG TESTING

Meanwhile, Gayton McKenzie has called on police to drug test Kelly, Boeta, and other occupants of their home when Joslin went missing last week. Gayton also demanded that the group be given another lie detector test.

Addressing Bheki Cele, who visited the community to show his support, the politician said: “We want to clear their name. Because, at the moment, we do not know if they are suspects”.

CRITICISM FOR ‘INTERFERING’

Meanwhile, Gayton revealed he had taken a step back amid criticism from authorities that he was “interfering” with the investigation.

In a media briefing on Friday, Western Cape Minister of Police Oversight and Community Safety Reagen Allen condemned individuals “politicising” their assistance to the community.

He said: “I am deeply alarmed at the manner in which this tragic matter has been politicised. Individuals and groups should refrain from this practice.

“It is highly immoral and insensitive to the friends, family, loved ones, and the wider community”.
