Information Published On Former South African President’s Estate


Details of former South African president Nelson Mandela’s Will have been made public, revealing how his estimated 46 million rand (£2.53 million) estate is to be divided.

Executors have revealed that the Mandela family trust is set to receive donations plus royalties, while gifts are also set to be made to the African National Congress political party, as well as personal staff, schools and the Wits and Fort Hare Universities.

The Will, which was written in 2004 and amended four years later, also stated his home in Houghton, Johannesburg will be used by the family of his late son Makgatho.

According to the BBC, the executor stated that the reading of the Will with family members was “charged with emotions” and stated they were pleased with the result.

There is now a 90-day period in which claims related to the terms of the Will can be lodged.
