I looked it up on wikipedia, and Kundu is a clan, not a place, in India.

What do you think it means?

On edit: It is supposed to be a fictional African country that was also referenced on the West Wing..... upon further googling.

Equatorial Kundu was an African nation on the TV series The West Wing.

Aaron Sorkin reused the name on The Newsroom.

After I watched the season premiere last night, I looked on DU for some kind of reaction/discussion, but found nothing. I thought last night's episode was quite compelling, reminded me of the first season which focused on the news stories, rather than the messy personal relationships that characterized season two. I was glad to see it and am looking forward to the rest of the (short) season, hope they continue with these kind of storylines. And thanks for the question. I didn't know the answer to that one, either.
