Stopping Fights in Zulu

Bring peace or separating people fighting is la-mu-la in Zulu. 

President Trump, a Republican, wants to build a Berlin Wall look-alike.  Democrats in the House of Representatives don’t want to give him money for cement, electronic surveillance and guns to patrol it, so the United States, touted as the greatest democracy on earth is limping, because of the shutdown.  The fight goes on in 2019.  Who will be the peacemaker?  U-ba-ni o-zo-la-mu-la?
Mind your own business is the opposite of being a peacemaker.  People are scared the fist might land in the eye.  A little question.  Do boxing referees have insurance, just in case professional boxers hit them by mistake or intentionally?
La-mu-la.  The first part is like lass, the second like moot and the last one like lass.
