Just how many people are there in the small town of Marondera?!?!?

ZIMSTATS puts the population at +/- 46000 people.

Last week the MDC T had a rally at Rudhaka Stadium and claimed to have had 42 000 people in attendance. They kicked walls insisting on the "fact" that they bused in no more than a thousand people for the rally. Today ZANU PF claims to have had 53 000 people at the same venue and they are also kicking walls insisting that they did not bus any people for the rally.

Two things here:

Either the two parties are big liars and propaganda specialists or the people of Marondera are outright sellouts. Logic says no one person can attend and sing, dance and slogan at an MDC-T rally and a ZANU-PF rally in a space of a week voluntarily.

Bottom line figures at these rallies are untrue and nothing to go by.
