Doesn't citypopulation.de say that Pretoria's urban area (i.e., Johannesburg) has 13.1 million people?

I believe that the reason it's not on here is because Pretoria is the smaller city. For example, Newark is in the New York city urban area, but it's generally not accepted as the Newark urban area. Pretoria is a smaller city in the Johannesburg urban area

I agree with the sentiment, but Devil's advocate - San Jose is larger than San Francisco, yet the urban area is San Francisco. So while I agree with the conclusion (and the answer), raw numbers alone are probably not enough.

If only people would double check the facts before making "corrections". It's not as if it's not easy to find facts out quickly.

Agreed to the above. Of the 3 (!) capitals, Pretoria is not only the most recognized, it's also part of the largest urban area (albeit, part of Johannesburg). Makes more sense to include Pretoria/Johannesburg. :)

In every Jetpunk's capital quiz Pretoria is considered, not Cape Town, why it's considered here?

In every Jetpunk quiz I've done, they've always listed all three capitals of South Africa.

Rome and Algiers have Higher Populations than Brasilia, Cape Town and Santo Domingo. Algiers (5 mil) and Rome (4.6 mil). If you were to be going by City proper populations your current list would be correct but all these cities are listed with their metro populations so Rome and Algiers would be missing.

@quizmaster according to your source Romes population is 4,353,738, which still puts it on the list. Also the data on Algiers is from 2008 so it could be a little outdated as well.
