For those wondering what happened to Ronald Gundo

Former Strathmore University and Maseno Secondary basketball star Ronald Gundo left Kenya two years back to pursue a basketball scholarship Stateside. One sports website even inaccurately reported that he was going to play professional ball. But basketball-wise not much has been heard from Gundo since then.

The video above shows that Gundo is still actively involved in basketball.

The video shows Ronald Gundo working on his jump-shot and around the basket moves. It then shows Gundo participate in a game. Clearly he has not lost any of his athleticism as evidenced by his ability to drive to the basket and his shot blocking. And clearly he has been hitting the gym

Gundo first came to prominence in 2010 when he helped Maseno secondary win the national schools basketball title by shocking highly fancied Laiser Hill Academy 54-52 in the finals. Laiser Hill was a school famous for recruiting the best players from all over East Africa and at one time boasted current NBA player Hasheem Thabeet. Beating Laiser Hill on that day was a huge shock.

Gundo was then recruited by Strathmore University in 2011 where he played along with University of Louisiana Monroe star Tylor Okari Ongwae. He also played with Okari for the Kenya youth teams.

Gundo is part of a proud tradition at Maseno Secondary for producing top notch basketball players. Other Maseno products like Collins Onyando and Brian Oduor also made a significant impact in USA college basketball.

Gundo is now affiliated with Valley Forge Military institute. Fans will be curious to see where Gundo’s basketball career takes him next.
