Reneilwe Letsholonyane (born 9 June 1982 in Soweto, Gauteng) is a South African football midfielder for Kaizer Chiefs and South Africa.

He hails from White City, Soweto.Nicknamed "Yeye", Letsholonyane mainly played in the lower leagues until joining Jomo Cosmos in 2006.

Two years later he signed with Kaizer Chiefs where he has since been an integral part of the lineup despite regularly battling injuries.
He has played for South Africa since 2008.

This all-action central midfielder made his debut for the Bafana Bafana in September 2009 against Madagascar. He is rather injury-prone, but when fit and firing he is a bustling and determined presence in the middle of the park, forever looking to burst into advanced areas.

Letsholonyane's career took off spectacularly when he signed for Jomo Cosmos in 2006 and two years later he joined Kaizer Chiefs, where he has developed as one of the main men.

He was born in Soweto, near the World Cup final venue, Soccer City, and as a youth he played centre back as well as up front. "The idea that I could play in the first World Cup in Africa is too exciting for me," Letsholonyane said. "I never believed this moment would come and now it is here. We cannot let this moment pass."
