Nelson Mandela has left his more than 3 million euro estate to his family as well as South Africa’s ruling ANC, former staff and schools he attended.
Monday’s reading of Mandela’s will had been expected to trigger fresh turmoil among his
squabbling relatives but war has not broken out, so far.
Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke told reporters in Johannesburg that reading wills to families was “always an occasion that is charged with emotions”.
But he said: “I am not aware of any contest of any type. ..The will has been duly lodged and has been accepted and registered as such.”
Mandela’s large family came together at December’s memorial service for the former South African president who died aged 95.
