Civil society has slammed President Peter Mutharika for appointing Acting Inspector General of Police Rodney Jose, saying he has no moral mandate to occupy the senior post, as he is a suspect in the murder of student and activist Robert Chasowa. The death, which made international headlines, was ruled a suicide under the Mutharika administration. However In 2012, the results of a commission of inquiry led by previous president Joyce Banda's administration, ruled his death a murder.
