The tragedy is that the same people who were saying four years ago that Farmaajo was an angel sent from the heavens are now saying that Rooble is a man that can walk on water.

With all due respect to both Farmaajo and Rooble, I must say that to me, both men are empty vessels in the ocean, appointed on dubious reasons. Neither of them has never, ever, articulated any meaningful political opinion of any kind. They have no political knowledge and experience, and with little understanding of the political dynamics in the country and the huge political, security, and socio-economic challenges facing our country.

Tragically, neither of them can articulate a vision for the country. In fact, they are narrow-minded low-level administrative bureaucrats from overseas. So, why would anyone expect any meaningful political solutions from them? They can offer none even if they wanted to.

I understand that some people mistakenly believe that Rooble could be a useful political tool that could be utilized to help rescue our country from the brink of a renewed civil war, but that is an argument based on pure fantasy. Rooble cannot not be expected to do something beyond his mental and physical abilities.

The sad fact is, Rooble lacks the political and intellectual faculties to lead our country at this critical time. He is the wrong man for the job. We must not make the same mistake twice.

The notion that Farmaajo is to be rejected and Rooble is the man that will rescue our people and our country is irrational and a wishful thinking. It is like someone saying that I do not like the king, but I would negotiate with his servant. It is worth mentioning that Farmaajo appointed Rooble, and he cannot, under any circumstance, disobey him.

In short, Rooble is not, can never be another Nuur Cadde! He is too weak and lacks the experience and the political courage that the late Somali prime minister had.
