LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF NELSON MANDELA READ OUT IN SOUTH AFRICA – FIND OUT WHO HE MENTIONED IN HIS WILL.
06 Feb 2014 – From TimesLive SA we get the report that 2 months after his passing, the last will and testament of former South African President Nelson Mandela, has been read out.
Deputy Chief Justice DikgangMoseneke told reporters in Johannesburg that the provisional assessment of Mandela’s estate was about R46 million.
His wife GracaMachel will take ownership of four properties the couple jointly owned in Mozambique, according to the former statesman’s will. She will also keep their vehicles, jewellery she received during the marriage and all money in their bank accounts or invested with other financial institutions.
Nelson Mandela’s will made provision for Makgatho and Makaziwe Mandela, his children with first wife Evelyn. He also provided for his children with his second wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s children as well as for all his grandchildren.
The total sum bequeathed to his children and grandchildren runs into millions of rands.
TimesLive SA also tells us that the statesman’s will also made provision for a number of educational institutions including the University of the Witwatersrand, where he obtained his law degree, and the University of Fort Hare.
Nelson Mandela’s personal assistant, Zelda la Grange, and chef, XoliswaNdoyiya were also provided for in the will.
Not surprisingly, the ANC was featured in the will as the anti-apartheid icon instructed that a percentage of royalties accruing to him or his estate be paid to the ANC.
In a touching twist, Mandela left money to Josina and MalenganeMachel, the children of former Mozambican president SamoraMachel and GracaMachel. He also included SamoraMachel’s six children born from a previous marriage in his will.
