As Elizabeth pointed out above (since this error still has not been fixed -- 23 Jul 2019), "sorry" has at least two meanings in English: 1) you offer your sympathy or condolences for some misfortune or loss, e.g., your brother loses his job -- you could say "Pole kaka" ; 2) you excuse yourself or ask for someone's pardon, e.g., you spill your drink and make a mess while having lunch with your brother -- you could say "Samahani kaka"
There is another phrase "(Tafadhali) nisamehe" which (I think -- need native speaker's opinion) would be used to ask for someone's forgiveness in a more serious matter. It could be translated as "Please forgive me."
I think this needs the subjunctive, so it would be "Naomba unisamehe", but I am not a native speaker.
