The formula is simple.

91 sq meters is the overall area of Mogadishu. I didn't do this measurement, but I am going off what google says. To do the measurement go vertically in Mogadishu from one direction to another and count the kilometer and then go another direction to calculate the width. Then multiply length by width to work out the area within your measurement. I won't do that I haven't got time but an independent assessor will need to this to ensure no figures are being 'fudged'. This needs to be done on the 'ground level'.

Anyways if Mogadishu is 91 SQ meters. A house block is how many meters? It's usually 20 x 20 meters. So an average house in Mogadishu will contain 400 SQ meters(not KM). Remember 1 million sq meters=1 sq kilometer. So how many sq meters in 91 sq kilometers? it's 91 million sq meters. So work out 400 sq meter block / 91 sq meters. There is a total 227500 homes, do you agree? that's using a medium block in Mogadishu 20 x 20 meters. So now work out 1 household x 8 x 225000 houses. Your overall figure for Mogadishu 1.6 million people.

This is a total maximum. This isn't discounting all the wasted 'space' in between alley ways, lane ways, roads, open spaces with no properties. So f*ck you cunts. I wish someone takes the war to mogadishu. All this crap about Mogadishu being 3 million is garbage when measurements are used. If they come up with a figure outside of that, I will definitely ask what method they used. Even if they come back from census a proper census and it's not close to this figure with a variation that is accepted for the 'area' meter Mogadishu covers, I will blast them.
