can you be a little more lenient with spelling on some Egyptian cities? Faiyum in particular is frustrating, there seem to be at least a half dozen valid spellings but only one (and a more obscure one at that) is accepted.

In this case, I think CityPopulation may actually be incorrect. Click on the Wikipedia link from CityPopulation for Bundungka Kunda and you get a stub page in German that says the place is actually a part of Serekunda.

Click on the CityPopulation link to Wikipedia for Serekunda and you get another stub page in German referencing a district of Serekunda that is also called Serekunda. But in the English version it lists the districts, and if you compare the list to CityPoplation’s listing of Kanifeng’s “Cities and Settlements”, it becomes apparent that Serekunda is basically just like Indianapolis–it annexed and consolidated about 90% of its LGA’s population.

Is reliable?

If nothing else, I hope you would accept Serekunda as an alias for Bundunka Kunda, since that’s the name people will find at that location on every other site on the web other than citypopulation.

I almost got it, but South Africa is killing me. Other than about 9-10 cities in South Africa, I can’t get the spelling right for these 2:
Abu an-Numrus in Egypt; and
Souk Sebt Oulad Nemma in Morocco.

Any help?

I can’t figure out where you got Giyani, South Africa. I don’t see it listed in or anywhere else except Bing maps. Do you want to share your source?
