A Kenyan newspaper, Daily Nation, has apologised for displaying a corruption ad in the classified section of its publication.

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.
