Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi has lashed out at people linking him to political dynasties in a bid to secure the presidency in 2022.
Speaking on Citizen TV's News Night show on Tuesday, the former Vice President said that he is not a part of any dynasty, thanks to his humble and poverty-striken background.
He dug back into his history and that of his father and former Cabinet Minister Moses Mudavadi, saying that his parents and grandparents suffered like most Kenyans.
He explained that his grandfather who was a gold miner was crushed to death in a gold mine when his father was a minor, and his father also had to toil before making his way up.
"I am not part of any dynasty. My grandfather was a gold miner who was crushed to death when my father was only nine. My father struggled a lot. We are not a dynasty," he said.
Mudavadi rubbished the dynasty narrative terming it propaganda being sponsored by people out to divide Kenyans for political reasons.
"There are no dynasties in Kenya. This is a terminology being used to divide Kenyans," he added.
Mudavadi has for long been listed alongside President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga whose fathers Jomo Kenyatta and Oginga Odinga were founding the president and Vice President.
Baringo Senator Gideon Moi whose father Daniel Moi was the second and longest-serving president has also been listed as part of the dynasties.
The group has been seen to regroup ahead of the 2022 elections, with pundits hinting that the plan could be to reunite in a bid to hand power to one of them upon Uhuru's retirement.
