Executors to announce contents of Madiba’s will

The contents of Former president Nelson Mandela's final will and testament will be announced on Monday.

"The Executors in the Estate of the late Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela invite you to a media briefing on the contents of his last will and testament and the management of his deceased Estate,” said Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke in a statement on Sunday.

The briefing would be held at 12pm at the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s offices in Houghton, Johannesburg.

The iconic leader died in December last year at the age of 95. He had been suffering from a number of recurring lung infections over the past few years.

Shortly after his death reports emerged that Madiba’s family was feuding over his estate and wanted to evict his widow, Graça​ Machel, from the house she and Mandela shared.

Thank you
Earlier, representatives of the Mandela family expressed gratitude to the medical staff who cared for Nelson Mandela during a gathering held in Houghton, Johannesburg this weekend.

"One of the key values Madiba aspired to was that of service. May you continue to do him proud in your service,” said Sello Hatang, chief executive of the Nelson Mandela Foundation where the ceremony was held.

Mandela's wife Graca Machel, his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, and his two daughters Zenani and Zindzi were among those who paid tribute to the medical staff.

Staff from hospitals including Park Lane, Milpark, Johannesburg General, Olivedale, 1 Military and the Pretoria Heart Hospital were praised for their care of Mandela, said Hatang in a statement.
