Henry Nyambe Mulenga (born 27 August 1987 in Chingola) is a Zambian footballer who currently plays in defence for ZESCO United F.C. in the Zambian Premier League.

Mulenga was part of the Zambian U-20 side which made the quarterfinals of the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada. He is a physical central defender, supported by the notion he was suspended for two of the four games Zambian played in the tournament, due to red card accumulation.

Domestically, the 2007 season saw him score three times for his club, despite missing 6 weeks on international duty. Following the relegation of his club, Forest Rangers, in 2007, he signed on with ZESCO United F.C. for the 2008 season.

Mulenga was called-up for the first time, to the national team as a late replacement for the first World Cup Qualifying match against Togo on May 31, 2008. A week later, he got his first international cap in a qualifying match against Swaziland as a substitute. The next match, Mulenga earned his first start in a 1-0 home win against the same team.

Nyambe Mulenga featured prominently in Zambia's stunning World Cup qualifying draw away to Egypt, holding the defending African champions to a single goal at home. Mulenga was reunited at centre-back with former U-20 compatriot Dennis Banda.

A knee injury in a friendly match versus Ghana in August 2009 kept Nyambe out of action for 6 months. After successful surgery on his ACL in India, he completed physiotherapy and regained his place in the Chipolopolo starting XI.
