Former South African President Nelson Mandela has left his $4.1 million estate to family members, the ruling African National Congress, former staff and several local schools, according to a reading of his will on Monday.
Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke told reporters the division of the estate—provisionally valued at 46 million rand ($4.1 million) excluding royalties—had been accepted by Mandela's family earlier on Monday with no contestation so far.
Mandela's third wife, Graca Machel, had waived her claims to the estate, Moseneke said at a news conference where he summarized parts of Mandela's 40-page will.

Moseneke said some of the estate would be split between three trusts set up by Mandela, including a family trust designed to provide for his more than 30 children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
