The Agriculture Minister of St Kitts and Nevis, Samal Duggins paid his tributes to the national hero Sir Lee L.

Adding further, Duggins stated the life of Sir Lee Moore has been an inspiration for many as he rose from being nothing to a national hero. He noted, “ I am really inspired by how great things have emerged from a place that most people render as insignificant in some cases.”

The Agriculture Minister Duggins also commended Sir Moore for his journey, hailing from a thatch-house to become a legal luminary and a hero amongst many. According to him, Sir Lee L. Moore is an example of where opportunities can take a person.

 It is noteworthy that Samal Duggins serves from the same constituency as Sir Lee Moore served in. At the same time, he remarked on the importance of scholarships as he has also been a beneficiary of a scholarship from a company back in 1997.

As the officials paid their respects, he urged Sir Moore’s daughter to lay the wreath to the great stalwart of the party while thanking her and her family for their services towards the nation.
