He was born on the 15th of August 1987 in Melmoth, South Africa. As of 2021, he is 34 years old and celebrates his birthday on August 15th every year.
Siphelele Mthembu began playing for the Kaizer Chiefs’ reserves team in 2008, with Maritzburg City. Mthembu had a league-leading 25 goals in the KZN stream of the Vodacom League in the 2007–08 season.
His first appearance of the pre-season was on 26 July 2008, when he made his Manchester United debut in a 4–0 loss to Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Fraizer Campbell, and Tom Cleverley. As close as they were to scoring, Gert Schalkwyk (in for Mthembu) was only able to put the ball in the net, but it was cleared off the line by Nemanja Vidic.
The club argued in court that Mthembu’s services belonged to the club, and as a result, he had to sign with Orlando Pirates. He didn’t fulfill expectations with the Buccaneers, getting very little playing time.
During his time with Bloemfontein Celtic and Golden Arrows, he made several brief appearances, before joining Dikwena at the start of the 2012–13 season. In his first season in the senior league, he found the back of the net four times in as many games. He tallied 10 goals in 30 league appearances by the end of his run.
Mthembu made his first appearance for Kaizer Chiefs on August 13, 2014, after joining the team in July, when he earned a 2–1 victory over Mpumalanga Black Aces. On December 6, 2014, Kanny scored his first goal for the Chiefs in a 2–0 victory over Orlando Pirates. Mthembu scored a standard hat-trick for EduSports on February 21, 2015, getting all three goals by putting the ball in the net with his head at FNB Stadium.
He signed for Cape Town City in the summer of 2018, agreeing to stay for one year with the possibility to be extended for an additional year.
In September 2020, he joined AmaZulu on a trial period and stayed with the club through October 2020.
