Kennedy Mweene (born December 11, 1984) is a Zambian footballer who plays for South African Premier Soccer League club Mamelodi Sundowns as a goalkeeper. He has been on many occasions captain of his country.

Mweene is arguably one of the best goalkeepers in the South African PSL, winning the PSL Goalkeeper of the Season award in the 2008-09 season. The player has been in big demand with all of the big spending clubs in South Africa but remained loyal to Free State Stars until the end of the 2012-13 season. On 27 June 2013, he agreed to a three-year deal with the PSL rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.

He has been the first-choice goalkeeper for Zambia since making his debut in 2004 and was a participant at the 2006 African Nations Cup, 2008 African Nations Cup, 2010 African Nations Cup and the 2012 African Nations Cup. On 12 February 2012, Mweene kept a clean sheet during the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations Final and saved one penalty kick (as well as successfully converted his own) in the shootout to decide the game, which was eventually won by Zambia. He was chosen as the goalkeeper of the tournament. During the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations Mweene converted a penalty kick, earning a 1–1 draw against Nigeria and also saved two penalties during the tournament.
