In 1981, Mohamed joined the People’s Rally for Progress (RPP) party. He gradually climbed the political association’s ranks, until he was eventually elected as RPP Vice-President in September 2012. He was later appointed President of the Union for a Presidential Majority (UMP) in November 2012.

From May 2005 to May 2011, Mohamed served in the government of Djibouti as Minister of Agriculture. He was subsequently named Minister of Defense in May 2011.
