Is there any different way to say it so the person we are talking to is able to know if we mean city or cities ?

The sentence doesn't make much sense, but if you change the object it should become clearer: you wouldn't say "we have apple", but "we have the/an apple". It only makes sense for a plural, i.e. "we have apples" to leave out the article.
