A huge rock sample loaded in a container headed for China has shocked Malawians.
Malawians have expressed concern that the country is losing a lot of raw minerals which are being exported in huge quantities as samples.
Pictures of the huge rock placed in a container have been shared widely on social media.
Minister of Mining Rashid Gaffar and other officials from the ministry were also at the site.
Reports say the rock contains Quartz and was being taken to China where it was to be tested as a sample.
