Pregnant woman fined over BronCleer
A CITY woman has been fined $200 for possessing 47 bottles of BronCleer.
Nyarai Chikomba, 32, pleaded guilty when she appeared before Harare magistrate Francis Mapfumo accused of possessing unregistered medicine.
The 32-year-old risks being jailed 30 days if she fails to pay the fine.
Chikomba told the court that she was asthmatic and she wanted to use BronCleer for medicinal purposes because at the hospital they told her they can’t recommend her any medicine since she is pregnant.
“I went to the hospital and they told me they can’t recommend me any medicine for asthma because I am pregnant, so I decided to buy BronCleer.”
The State proved that on May 7 this year around 9am detectives received information that Chikomba was in possession of dangerous drugs at her house and they went to her house where they introduced themselves and the purpose of their visit.
The detectives searched the house and they found 22 bottles of BronCleer cough syrup hidden in a deep freezer, four bottles stashed in a headboard drawer and 21 bottles were recovered from a grey bag.
The medicines were then seized and she was arrested.
The 47 bottles have a street value of RTGS$940.
