Case linked to Rwanda genocide has Wichita lawyer crisscrossing Africa

Lawyer Kurt Kerns found himself traipsing through some of the most dangerous, politically torn parts of Africa looking for witnesses in a criminal case back in Wichita. "I was walking through the Congo, and I realized I'm the only white guy on the street in a place the State Department warns Americans shouldn't be traveling," Kerns said. "But what do you do? You have to go where the witnesses are."
