PM Roble suspends Foreign Affairs Minister Abdisaid Muse Ali over authorization of exportation of illegal charcoal to Oman

Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble has suspended Foreign Affairs Minister Abdisaid Muse on Tuesday. Prime Minister Roble also nullified Muse’s letter that authorized a ship carrying illegal charcoal exported from Somalia and docked off the coast of Oman. In a statement from his Office, PM Roble said that the letter from the ministry contravenes National and international law and poses a great threat to the country. The Prime Minister directed the National Audit Office and security agencies to investigate the matter and report it to the judiciary as soon as possible. This comes a day after the Prime Minister returned to Mogadishu from UAE where he briefed the new President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud on the meetings he held with the UAE new President, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. No official comments or statements were available from Abdisaid Muse to the Prime Minister's allegations by the time of compiling this story. Sources privy to the development intimated to the Media that the Prime Minister and the Foreign Affairs Minister have not been in good terms since the latter was appointed to the position. Former President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo appointed Abdisaid and took over from Mohamed Abdirizak Mohamud Abubakar who was fired. Abdisaid is a close ally of former President Farmaajo. Farmaajo and Roble have also not been in good working relations as they released conflicting letters and statements from each office since President announced he had suspended the powers of the PM in December 2021 and subsequently placed security at the office of the PM which the outgoing PM described as "coup attempt". Somalia's former president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo handed over tools of power to President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud in a brief ceremony held at the presidential palace on Monday.
