Contents of Madiba's will to be revealed

Mandela's last will and testament was last updated nine years ago.

Former President Nelson Mandela died at his Houghton home in northern Johannesburg on 5 December 2013.

JOHANNESBURG - Former president Nelson Mandela's last will and testament will be made public today.

Madiba passed away at his Houghton home on 5 December aged 95.

He was buried in the rural village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape on 15 December at a funeral service attended by 4,000 people.

The Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory will reveal the content at a press briefing later today.

It will most likely shed more light on Mandela's wealth in the days before his death.

Madiba's will was last updated almost nine years ago.

Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, human rights lawyer George Bizos and Judge President of the Eastern Cape Themba Sangoni were named as executors of the will.

Last year, Madiba's daughters Makaziwe and Zenani turned to the courts in an attempt to take control of the bulk of their father's money in entities.

Zenani and Makaziwe were trying to remove Bizos, politician Tokyo Sexwale and lawyer Bally Chuene as directors of the company overseeing Nelson Mandela's legacy funds.

At the centre of the dispute was the R15 million in proceeds from the sale of an art piece with Madiba's handprints.
