The newspaper which published the corruption advertorial rendered an apology after widespread public criticism.
The advertisement offered an opportunity to interested members of the public to join a corruption cartel that can help them win government contracts without probe.
A BBC reporter who interviewed the advertiser was asked to pay a sum of $500 and the cartel will get him a contract worth $500,000.
Kenya's Daily Nation, which published the advertorial was critisized for displaying it on the newspaper.
This prompted an apology from the popular media establishment.
