Nelson Mandela 'left $4m estate'

JOHANNESBURG - Nelson Mandela left an estate valued at more than 46 million rand ($4.13m; £2.53m), a public reading of his will has revealed.

Executor Justice Dikgang Moseneke, summarising what he said was a 40-page document, said he was "not aware of any contest" to the will.

Close personal staff each get 50,000 rand. Schools the former South African president attended are due to receive 100,000 rand.

Mr Mandela died in December, aged 95.

I hope Mugabe will leave something for the country he looted with reckless abandon

I am really moved that the man of his stature left only $4m? Wow? I wonder what is in Mugabe's will. I am sure there will be one for the public and another private in order to rig it.
