Kenyans Impressed After Dutch Prime Minister Mops Spilled Coffee

Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte has gone viral on social media for the right reasons.

The Dutch PM accidentally spilled coffee in the Dutch Parliament, but didn't leave the job to the cleaners. He asked for a mop cleaned up the mess as the cleaners applauded him.

In the video, posted on Twitter by a Dutch diplomat, the PM is seen picking up a coffee cup that he had accidentally dropped on the Parliament floor.

Amid cheers from the cleaning staff, Rutte went on to take the mop from them and started cleaning up the spilt liquid.

The video of the humble gesture instantly went viral on social media, with many commenting on the humility of the PM.

Dutch diplomat Cees Van Beek first uploaded the video on Twitter on June 4, and since then his post has been liked and shared by people across the world.

The only thing they're good at when it comes to cleaning is, corrupt track they clean so good that is so hard even for a microscope to dirty
