How can ROE% be less than ROCE?

We are supposed to check ROCE value instead of ROE when the stock has debt. ROCE considers debt value while ROE does not consider it.
In some of the stocks, I have observed that ROE% is less than ROCE. How is that possible? ROCE considers debt also so should ROE not be always > ROCE?

Per this article, the numerators vary too, one is Net income, other is EBIT…
