Posted By on Wed, Oct 26, 2011 at 7:18 AM

Fidel Nshombo, who came to Boise in 2006 after surviving the conflict in Congo, and much, much more, was honored with a U.S. flag from the U.S. Capitol at Boise City Hall Tuesday.

Boise Mayor Dave Bieter gave Nshombo the flag to commemorate his citizenship and his achievements as an advocate for other refugees in the region.

The flag was provided by Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo.
