Daily Nation rushes to correct public insult published today November 25th

Daily Nation demonstrated what is perhaps the highest level of incompetence by a local newspaper on its November 25th publication.

 

Corruption has infiltrated every facet of the Kenyan society to the extent it’s almost ‘illegal’ not to be corrupt.

The government and the opposition are both gripped by cases of corrupt dealings that have seen taxpayers lose billions of shillings.

Tenderpreneurship has become a money-minting profession as drivers, hairdressers and media rejects make millions of shillings winning government tenders.

And guess what, an advert publicizing ways to win government tenders through corrupt dealings popped up on Daily Nation’s November 25 publication.

Screenshots of the advert on Daily Nation went viral on social media prompting action from the newspaper.

Daily Nation issued a statement apologizing for their sincere blunder:

“We refer to the publication of advertisement that was erroneously published in the Daily Nation of November 25, 2016. We highly regret and sincerely apologise for this error. Nation Media Group does not support or condone such advertisement which clearly goes against our mission to positively impact society’s values and our editorial policy. We have taken immediate action to blacklist the agent and are reviewing our internal procedures to ensure that such an error never recurs.

We wish to thank you very much for your continued loyalty and are committed to delivering value to our readers in the greater interest of the public through responsible journalism.”
