Glenn Agliotti Discusses Brett Kebble, Oscar Pistorius and Working as a Clearing Agent

Glenn AgliottiGlenn Agliotti spoke to People Magazine following the publication of Peter Piegl and Sean Newman’s biography on him, titled Glenn Agliotti. Agliotti discussed Brett Kebble, calling him “gregarious and larger than life” and saying that they shared a love of being wealthy and buying expensive things. He recalled how he ended up identifying Kebble’s body at a morgue in Hillbrow.

Agliotti described his work as a clearing agent: “I was clearing everything from clothing to cars – some above board, others not.” He also spoke about what it was like living under house arrest, talked about a robbery and attack on his family during that time and mentioned his recent encounter with Oscar Pistorius:

“It was a moment I’ll never forget,” says Glenn Agliotti, recalling an evening he spent with Brett Kebble shortly before he was found shot dead in his car. “We were sitting drinking the finest French wine and Brett was playing classical music on a grand piano. There was a painting on the wall that caught my eye – not because it was beautiful, but because it was the ugliest piece of art I’d ever seen. Two monks, playing a game of snooker, with a wide-eyed dog perched on the table. I turned to Brett and said the painting was a shocker and he replied, with jest, ‘Agliotti, my boy, have you any idea how much that painting cost?’
