Glenn Agliotti on Telling His Side of the Story in His New Biography

Glenn AgliottiCharl du Plessis from City Press interviewed Glenn Agliotti about his newly released biography written by Peter Piegl and Sean Newman. Agliotti said that he decided to participate in the book, titled Glenn Agliotti, as he wanted to get his “side of the story out there, so one day my kids can make up their own minds and for them to be proud of their dad”.

Du Plessis asked Agliotti about his relationship with Selebi, the drug charges and the public perception of him. Agliotti said that Selebi didn’t do anything for him, that his involvement in drugs “was wrong” and that while some people hate him, others love him:

Glenn Agliotti must be one of the few South Africans who has been convicted of dealing drugs while claiming not to know a single thing about them.

“I don’t even know what the s**t looks like. I’ve never taken drugs myself,” he tells me, sitting in a coffee shop in Sandton.
