The incident of power struggle between the Somalia's president and the Prime Minister became public last week, when Roble (the Prime Minister) sacked Somalia's spy chief due to his way of handling probes and because of that, president Mohamed overruled the Prime Minister, appointing the dumped intelligence official as his national security advicer. 

Going straight to the point, the reason why president Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed of Somali withdraws the executive powers of the Prime Minister was because his prime minister made a decision that was not in accordance with the laws and constitution of the country. This also means that the Prime Minister, Mohamed Hussein Roble, failed to consult or collaborate with the president before taking decisions.

According to President Mohamed, he accused the prime minister of violating the constitution and taking reckless decision, which could pave way for security and political instability in the country. The executive powers that was withdrawn from the prime minister was particularly the ability to hire and fire officials, but may be restored after the election process in the country is completed.
