The National Democratic Congress is deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Michael Denis Lett, a stalwart of our party and a patriot, whose contribution has left an indelible mark.
The nation will remember his heroic stand in defense of the People’s Right of Access to the La Sagesse Beach in 1973 and his willingness to sacrifice his freedom in defense of his principles.
His dedicated and enlightened leadership of the Ministry of Agriculture has directly led in the emergence of Agriculture as one of the leading growth sectors in our nation’s economy.
He will be remembered for his selfless dedication to service, his wisdom and patience as a leader, his ability to work across the political divide and his love for his constituents.
The Political Leader, Executive and members of the National Democratic Congress express our condolences to the members of Mr. Lett’s family, his Constituency of St. David’s, as well as the staff of the Ministry for Agriculture and the nation as a whole.
We will always treasure the memory of this illustrious son of the soil.
May his soul rest in peace.
