At least 12 Lesotho diplomats and their spouses have until Sunday to wind up and leave South Africa after being expelled over the illicit peddling of duty-free alcohol.

Reports indicate that the 12 were bringing alcohol into the country without paying duty and then re-selling it in bars and restaurants.

Also caught up in the booze scandal were Malawi diplomats.
