Grenada Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Michael Denis Lett has passed away.

Lett, a member of the ruling National Democratic Congress, represented the St David’s constituency.

“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,” the National Democratic Congress said in a statement. “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.”

His passing comes just a few weeks before Grenada’s upcoming national elections.

“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,” the NDC said. “We will always treasure the memory of this illustrious son of the soil.”

The nature of Lett’s death was not disclosed.

“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 party said.
