That's because back on the 31st of March, a few days after the start of the Covid-19 related lockdown, they issued a press release stating that the authorities had erred by prohibiting the sale of alcohol and tobacco during this period.
Towards the end of the first month under lockdown, media outlets, economists, business
leaders, politicians, medical and legal professionals and others joined SADPI in calling
for a repeal of those regulations.

can instead of renting. The rationale is that you will be better off paying for your property as soon as you can with the rent you are paying to your landlord.
