Some the of the projects which were visited include sewer reticulation and a community hall which is still under construction in Lusaka and visited a site where a community hall in Monontsha village next to shopping complex.

As part of revenue collection strategy Executive Mayor advocated residents to pay services and not to temper with electricity indicating the importance of adhering to paying services in order to receive services efficiently.
