The burly security man had been decked out in some of the most “baffling” body armour that included a spiked helmet and shoulder pads.

The officer, prepared for any eventuality, outdid himself with two pairs of sunglasses and four torches strapped to his spiny headgear.

“Wouldn’t mess World’s scariest bodyguard kitted out with bizarre spiked jacket, gas mask, assault rifle and two pairs of sunglasses at Malawi president ’s swearing in ceremony” the UK’s Sun newspaper headlined its story.

Mutharika was sworn in yesterday after winning the highly contested presidential race.

He defeated Malawi Congress Party’s Lazarus Chakwera and his friend-cum-nemesis, Saulos Chilima of UTM.

For his second term, the ruling DPP torchbearer deputised by Everton Chimulirenji secured 38.6 percent of the 5.1 million cast votes against Chakwera’s 35.4 percent and Chilima’s 20.2 percent.
