JOHANNESBURG, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- Late former South African president Nelson Mandela has bequeathed 1.5 million rand (about 136,000 U.S. dollars) to the NRM Family Trust in his will revealed on Monday.

Mandela also left royalties to the trust of which a percentage would be given to the ruling African National Congress (ANC).

Mandela's will was read out by Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, one of the executors of Mandela's estate, at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory in Johannesburg.

Mandela's estate was worth about 46 million rand (about 4.2 million dollars), Moseneke said.

Under the will, certain members of Mandela's personal staff get 50,000 rand (about 4,500 U.S. dollars) each.

Mandela also left amounts of 100,000 rand (about 9,000 dollars) to educational institutions he attended during his lifetime, said Moseneke.

These institutions include Wits University, Qunu Secondary School and Orlando West High School in Soweto west of Johannesburg.

Other beneficiaries listed in the will included his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Mandela died of illness on December 5 last year at the age of 95.
