Siyabonga Sangweni (born 29 September 1981 in Empangeni, KwaZulu-Natal) is a South African football (soccer) defender for Premier Soccer League club Golden Arrows and South Africa.

His younger brother Thamsanqa Sangweni plays for AmaZulu.

A hard-hitting central defender thought to be a particular favourite of South Africa coach Carlos Alberto Parreira. As he proved when scoring with his head in a recent warm-up game against Bulgaria, his undoubted aerial power can make itself felt at both ends of the pitch and he has the potential to emerge as a hero for the host nation at this World Cup.

The Durban-born stopper won his first full cap in 2007 and then had two years in the international wilderness before Parreira restored him to the fold. His younger brother Thamsanqa is a footballer, too, playing for South African Premiership side AmaZulu FC.
