Tension with President Farmajo
On 27 December 2021, Farmajo suspended Roble over allegations of corruption and misuse of public land. Roble described the move as an coup attempt from the president.

On 10 January, Somali leaders announced they struck a deal to complete parliamentary elections by February 25, after repeated delays that have threatened the stability of the country.
