Selebi owes us a simple answer

At the height of allegations of impropriety levelled against the national police commissioner regarding his relationship with Glen Agliotti, Jackie Selebi said unequivocally that he is unaware that his friend is involved in crime, "finish and klaar".

At the height of allegations of impropriety levelled against the national police commissioner regarding his relationship with Glen Agliotti, Jackie Selebi said unequivocally that he is unaware that his friend is involved in crime, "finish and klaar".

I later read that Selebi told President Thabo Mbeki that he was maintaining the friendship because Agliotti was a police informant.

Agliotti has now been found guilty of serious crimes and will never be able to offer an informant's services again. Finish and klaar.

My question to Selebi is: now that Agliotti has admitted guilt, can you please state on record if you are still his friend? It's a simple issue and a simple question. Can I please get a simple answer.
