A South African man, Mandla Maseko, who won a seat among 22 others, to travel on a trip to space has died in a motorcycle accident before he could achieve the feat

Maseko, picked for the trip sponsored by the Axe Apollo Space Academy, reportedly died in a motorcycle crash which occurred last Saturday. 

The South African, popularly known as Spaceboy and Afronaut, before his death would have been the first black African in space, after beating over a million people to win the sub-orbital trip. 

“It is with deep sadness that the Maseko family confirms that Mandla Maseko tragically passed away in a bike accident last night, July 6 2019,” family spokesperson Sthembile Shabangu announced in a media release on Sunday.

“Maseko will be sorely missed. May Mandla Maseko’s kind and beautiful soul rest in eternal peace.”
