Broncleer is a cough mixture meant to clear a stubborn cough which is banned in Zimbabwe. Commonly known locally as Bronco, the drug is banned because it is abused as a euphoric drug.

Broncleer Smuggling

Broncleer is mostly smuggled into Zimbabwe from South Africa through Beitbridge border and Mozambique's Chidodo border (in Muzarabani) and Nyamapanda border.[1].

According to a report in 2016, the smuggling syndicates involve long-distance truckers, politicians, the police and gangs.

Banning of Broncleer

The Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe (MCAZ), a government body which regulates medicines, banned Broncleer because of its high levels of the addictive substance codeine, an opiate which is addictive.
