President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika’s bodyguard has placed Malawi on the map by scooping the world’s scariest bodyguards by the UK’s popular news outlet, The Sun.
The security officer identified as Sub Inspector Ndenguma was on duty during the Inuaguration ceremony of President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika on Tuesday at Kamuzu Stadium in the commercial capital Blantyre.
According to the publication, the security officer was captured in a spiked helmet and shoulder pads.
Prepared for any eventuality, the gun toting military policeman also wore his battle camouflage, a gas mask and two pairs of sunglasses.
Staying on the doubling up theme of his get up, he even had four torches strapped to his spiny headgear.
The man was standing guard on top of a pick up truck as Malawi’s President Peter Mutharika was sworn in for a second five-year term yesterday.
The 78-year-old Mutharika began his acceptance speech by declaring “I am not dead!” to address persistent rumours of his demise ahead of the vote.
He added that “it is time to move on and develop the country”.
Mutharika narrowly won re-election in the southern African nation with 38 per cent of the votes in last week’s poll, while main opposition leader Lazarus Chakwera received 35 per cent.
