JOHANNESBURG -- Anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela left some 46 million rand ($4.1 million) in assets to family members, former staff, several schools and South Africa's ruling party, his will executors said Monday. 

Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke told reporters that the former South African president's will had not been contested so far and that Mandela's third wife, Graca Machel, may waive her claims to the estate, according to a report by Reuters.

Mandela died in December at the age of 95.
