In this conflict between former President Farmaajo (whose mandate has expired) and Caretaker Prime Minister Rooble, institutions have lost relevance. The Caretaker Cabinet is non-existent. It is a fight between two persons in sheer power struggle. Here government is absent. Rooble is a lone gunman.
This situation was probably brought about by the fact that since former prime minister Khayre was topled, Farmaajo has been acting both as Head of State and Head of Government (prime minister) in the same way former president, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, was acting during the stint of prime minister Saacid Shirdoon.
It looks that Rooble doesn’t have the entire support of the Caretaker Cabinet.
