He called on residents to venture in micro businesses that will enable them meet their daily needs. He later pledged to provide them with business grants by saying that the government will empower them to do business but it will not be able to provide jobs for everyone.

Moreover, he promised to work together with the Ministry of Health in ensuring that all medical institutions and hospitals within the ward are equipped with enough medicine and other medical apparatus for appropriate medical services to the residents of Nabiswa.
