0 63

A picture is being shared on social media claiming that it is of the Dutch Health Minister who works two hours daily as a cleaning agent before going to her office.
“In The Netherlands, minister of health works two hours daily as a cleaning agent before going to office. Really enjoy it…..Pride in Her Nation. To lead is to Serve…..” the text read.


FACT CHECK

When NewsMobile fact-checked the image, we found the claim to be fake.
On putting the image through Reverse Image Search, we found an article by BBC titled,’Berliners get day off for Women’s Day‘. The article featured an image with the caption “Franziska Giffey wants women to work in all professions.”


Franziska Giffey is the German Minister for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.
Using these keywords, we found this image on Reuters dated March 7, 2019 and the caption on the picture read, ” German Minister for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, Franziska Giffey collects a garbage container in the run-up to the International Women’s Day and active participation in a waste disposal tour of the BSR municipal service in Berlin, Germany, March 7, 2019. REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch.”

The current Minister of Health of Netherlands is Hugo de Jonge, who has been in office since October 26, 2017.


This proves that the claim  attached to the picture is false.
