SPACERA former Los Angeles District Attorney had this to say on the group "KUMI 415 NATION is an expansive and violent prison gang which has documented members in every prison within California. It's currently been moving onto the streets of California specifically, the Bay area along with moving into the prison systems of surrounding states.

SAN ANDREAS - KUMI 415 NATION also known as KUMI A.N.O. ( African National Organization ) is an African-American prison gang that was formed in the 1980s at San Quentin State Prison by Leonard “Mousy Brown” Fulgham and a group of other Black Guerilla Family members who were dissatisfied with the current state of the BGF. Initially, it only recruited black inmates from the Bay Area, but now it recruits any black inmates they deem fit of membership.
For the first decade or more of its existence, KUMI was one of the main rivals of the Black Guerilla Family but it has since became the primary enforcement group for the BGF on the yard. This is due to the fact most BGF members spend their entire sentence in solitary confinement. Many top KUMI leaders or Executive Body Council (EBC) members have become Black Guerrilla members, although some older KUMI members still hold grudges against the BGF. KUMI's structure is split into two divisions the first being the aforementioned Executive Body Council (EBC) inside the EBC it's split into Commanders, Captains, and Lieutenants. These are the men calling the shot from inside every prison and the ones ordering the murders. Below the EBC you have the lower division which is the Echelon Golden Chain, or EGC. The ranks are the same as in EBC, the higher division: commander, captain, and lieutenant. However, these are the men who are carrying out and passing along the orders of the EBC. You also have foot soldiers which are full-fledged members of KUMI but hold no rank.
The first inklings of KUMI inside San Andreas can be traced back to 1999, Micah "Lucifer" James a California KUMI member who was arrested whilst driving through San Andreas with several kilos of cocaine and heroin. James was sentenced to seven years in High Desert State Prison, in here James contacted California based members and was given permission to set up a regiment inside of San Andreas. At the time no Black group dominated the San Andreas system due to the chokehold the Aryan Brotherhood along with the Mexican Mafia had on San Andreas yards. The Black Guerrilla Family and several homegrown gangs such as the "Black Control," "United Black Nation" and "Heartless Felons" attempted to form within the system but fell victim to the two dominant groups or infighting amongst Black prisoners. By 2003 KUMI A.N.O, was recognized as a serious threat and members were transferred to other prisons within the state. This backfired as other KUMI regiments set up in several other prisons across the state. Since then KUMI has very slowly spread within the state with documented members inside of every prison within the State of San Andreas, with the San Andreas Correctional Facility being the last.

Recently, however, KUMI has seen its peak in terms of activity within the state's prison system. The group in several prisons across the state has gotten increasingly more aggressive towards other prison gangs and it even it's own members. Much of this can be placed onto the fact that the San Andreas Government has been focusing its investigations of prison groups almost solely on slowing down the Mexican Mafia and Aryan Brotherhood, this brief period of diminished power may have led to KUMI jumping out in an attempt to grab it. The San Andreas Correctional Facility is where much of the violence has occurred.
On December 2nd, 2018 in the San Andreas Correctional Facility 65 inmates,
Another incident inside of SACF occurred when Demetrius 'Demon' Byrne a reputed ranking KUMI A.N.O member brutally murdered a Sureño inmate. The Black inmates and the Sureño inmates had been at war and an order was delivered by the KUMI EBC that it was "on sight" with any Sureño inmate they run into. Bryne was in his cell when a Sureño inmate whose name has not been released per family request, walked up to Demetrius's cell on the upper tier and attempted to converse. Byrne took out a crudely made prison shank and aiming for the Sureño inmates Bryne sliced the carotid artery open, the ordeal only lasted around forty-five seconds. But in that time period, Bryne was able to stab the victim over thirty-five times before being taken down by non-lethal impact rounds. The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.
Just last week inside the Ironlake State Prison AD-SEG, an improper transfer of inmates allowed for a DeMarcus Pierce a KUMI EBC to attack Evan Delaney a Nazi Low Rider. The two inmates who typically would never be allowed near each other were both being escorted at the same time due to a mistimed transfer, the two instantly broke free of the Correctional Officers grasp and charged at each other. With both their hands cuffed, the two used anything on their body as a weapon, this included biting, headbutts and knees to the body. Incidents such as this are proving that KUMI A.N.O is making a ploy to become a top prison gang within San Andreas, whether it can become successful in that venture or not is yet to be seen.
