Former South African President Nelson Mandela’s Will was read to his family on Monday. According to reports, he has left his $4.1 million estate to family members, the ruling African National Congress, former staff and several local schools, some of which inheritances will be received outright and others in trust.
Although the reading of Mandela’s Will was expected to incite another round of feuds among members of his large and factious family, Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke reported that the Will had been accepted by Mandela’s family with no contest so far. Perhaps that is because what he left behind that will prove most lucrative is his legacy, which some family members have already harvested for their own financial pursuits.
