The bronchi are tubes leading to the lungs, you have two lungs, ergo you need two bronchi.
Now why two lungs? A lot of your body organs and parts come in paired sets - lungs, kidneys, eyes, ears, arms, testicles, or as multiples like teeth, toes, fingers - to provide you with a backup set if one fails due to disease or injury.
