I wonder what will Selebi say about his "Friend"?

The Scorpions on Wednesday night arrested a prominent businessman in connection with the murder of mining magnate Brett Kebble in September last year, the elite unit said on Thursday.

Talk Radio 702 named the suspect as Glenn Agliotti, a friend of police National Commissioner Jackie Selebi and fixer for Kebble

The Scorpions in September raided premises belonging to Agliotti, whom they have identified as “the Landlord", a kingpin in a major drugs and contraband cigarette syndicate.

The raid has placed Palto, a murky security company that freelanced for the police, in the spotlight.

The search warrant lists Agliotti as a suspect alongside members of Palto, as well as senior police officials who were Palto’s contacts at police headquarters.

Allegations that Palto served as a cover for a crime syndicate remain unproven, but available evidence serves to reinforce the suspicion that the contraband syndicate was improperly linked to police at the highest levels.

Selebi, who has tried to downplay his friendship with *Agliotti after initially saying that Agliotti was “my friend, finish and klaar", allegedly was close to Palto too.

According to Scorpions spokesperson Lucinda Moonieya, the arrest was carried out on Wednesday night in Gauteng. Talk Radio 702 said Agliotti was arrested at his home in Bryanston, Johannesburg.

She added the man would appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on Thursday afternoon.

Guy Kebble, brother of Brett Kebble, told the radio station: "I knew who the suspect was; nothing surprises me. I can't wait to see who the other suspects are. I have a clear picture of who they are."

He also said he believes there was a "deliberate cover-up".

"The whole thing went to sleep for a long time. Who would have thought two years ago that you would be discussing your brother's murder?

I never saw Glenn and Brett together. I met him at a restaurant in Hyde Park, and I said, 'This is a person you should stay clear of.'"

Talk Radio 702 said it decided to name the suspect because it was in the public's interest. - Sapa, Staff Reporter

Arnold Schwarzenegger AKA the Governator was also involved with Agliotti and with Selebi as President of Interpol - this murder reaches international proportions

The bait has been thrown. Lets see who else starts breaking up in feasting on the bait. Brett was not alone in his ventures, not at that level. It took a huge conspiracy to be able to swing the stuff that happened. I think a few huge upsets on the high flyers end are on the cards.

Hmm. Well, predictably, the DP and the Nats want Selebi to be fired. Now, if only a certain incompetent grinning fool* would listen to them...

* Smiling Charlie, or Charles Nqakula, for those who've never seen a picture/interview.

I was under the impression the Nats are no more?

They're probably cleaning out a nice new cell in the prison ward for Agliotti as we speak. I wonder what minor ailment he will have?

I think the 'Landlord' won't need an ailment, half his cronies are already in there, will just need the secret handshake and in a jiffy will have formed his own militia :D

Maybe Agliotti can hook up with Shaik in the slammer and do a deal or two

Place is getting crowded, guess that's why they had to let out Yengeni early.

Think they might be provided with those new 5 seconds to put a condom on kit?

The plot thickens.
There has been renewed speculation around the case since the arrest on Thursday of businessman Glen Agliotti, an associate of Kebble and controversially also a friend of police commissioner Jackie Selebi.

Agliotti's arrest sparked off renewed calls for Selebi's resignation.

Nkosi said there had been no further arrests since that of Agliotti.

He did not comment on media speculation that a police commissioner also had been arrested.
