Johannesburg - Former president Nelson Mandela has left nothing to his ex-wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, in his will, which was read in Johannesburg on Monday.

The only mention made of her, is as his "second wife", with reference to his children Zenani Mandela-Dlamini and Zindzi Mandela, as well as their children.

Executor Dikgang Moseneke outlined a "provisional inventory" of R46m, excluding royalties and other amounts.

However, he cautioned the amount could change as the will is studied more carefully.

The document was drawn up in 2004, and provisions were updated in 2005 and 2008.

Mandela's third wife, Graça Machel, is the main beneficiary of the will because their marriage was "in community of property" and she therefore has the right to half his estate, Moseneke said. 

He said he is not aware of any challenges to the provisions of the will.

Earlier on Monday, Moseneke said, the will was read in its entirety to members of Mandela's family.

"It went well," he said. "There were clarifications sought from time to time."

Last year, while Mandela's health was in decline, his family was involved in a number of high-profile disputes.
