Lucky Lekgwathi (born 1 August 1976 in Ga-Rankuwa, Gauteng) is a South African football defender for Orlando Pirates and South Africa. He played for South Africa at the 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cup, at which South Africa were guests.

He is arguably Orlando Pirates' most successful captain, having captained them to six trophies in 2seasons(2010/10 & 2011/12) under Dutch legend, Ruud Krol, making Pirates the only Double Treble Champions since the formation of the PSL. He was very instrumental in ending Orlando Pirates' 8 year league drought, scoring crucial goals in the process, most notably a winner against Supersport United.
