HAVANA, March 4 (UPI) -- Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro said that he approved of his brother's decision to reshuffle his Cabinet, calling two former members "unworthy."

Current Cuban leader Raul Castro earlier this week replaced 10 Cabinet members in all, among them former Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque and Cabinet Secretary Carlos Lage.

It was not clear however if Roque and Lage were the two to whom Fidel Castro was referring, the BBC reported Wednesday.

The former Cuban leader did say however that two of the Cabinet officials has been seduced "by the honey of power" and needed to be removed.

The move was seen as an effort by Raul Castro to revamp an administration that was filled with officials that served his brother for several years.
