Madobe included his fierce critics, including Abdinasir Serar once served as his spokesman in the new government. He was appointed new education minister of Jubaland.

Madobe, who is a former terrorist leader has captured Kismayo in late 2012 with the support of Kenyan defense forces [KDF] who invaded Somalia to fight against Al-Shabaab after abductions of aid workers.

Jubaland's leader was accused of being the main obstacle to Somalia’s election and working the interest of his main ally of Kenya which is embroiled in diplomatic tension with Somalia.
