NAIROBI Cheap Kemba Walker Jersey , Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- Kenya's Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on Tuesday extended voting period for regions where heavy rains and flooding made it hard for voters to reach the poll centers in the remote northern region of Turkana.


IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati told a media briefing in Nairobi that majority of the polling stations opened on time.

In addition to being a perfect winter holiday getaway destination, Tenerife is also a favourite location for many specialist holiday providers. This group of holiday packagers focus on niche market sectors and provide specialist holidays to cater for certain types of people or people with special interests.

Cookery holidays Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Jersey , walking holidays, photography holidays, birdwatching holidays and painting holidays are all examples of specialist holidays that now use Tenerife as their base. Holidays of this type are usually provided for smaller groups of people and feature either a guide or tutor as part of the package.
