After a class performance in the OFC Nations Cup, which doubled as the Oceania Stage 2 Qualifiers, Gunemba caught the attention of clubs from Columbia, Malaysia, Solomon Islands and Vietnam, but after careful consideration decided to make the move to New Zealand and take up an offer from Eastern Suburbs AFC based in Auckland.
