Four men have been arrested after a woman was shot dead and her British brother-in-law tied and beaten during a raid on their South African farm by a gang who said they ‘hate whites’.

David Thomas, 67, his wife Brenda, 61, and friend Shaun Vorster had been enjoying a barbecue with Brenda’s sister Heila Kilian, 63, when the gang struck at the smallholding in Stilbaai in the Western Cape.

Five armed men wearing balaclavas and orange boiler suits appeared in front of them and one fired a single shot through Heila’s heart killing her instantly. The three others were trussed up ‘like turkeys’ and beaten as the armed gang demanded money and weapons.

Mr Thomas, a retired British engineer, was dragged into the darkness and had his head repeatedly smashed against a brick wall as his attackers told him they ‘hated whites’ and put a gun to his head.

South African police say they have made four arrests on the edge of Cape Town amid reports the couple’s station wagon, which was stolen by the gang, was being stripped down for spare parts in a backstreet garage.

Brenda was tied up and threatened with death at knifepoint and gunpoint during the horrific ordeal.

Believing she was tied up securely, she slipped her bonds and ran but was captured and dragged back before being beaten again and tied up even tighter and told if she tried to run away again she would be killed.

Her husband David told his torturers they had no money but were Christian’s building a community on their farm.

Brenda was tied up and threatened with death at knifepoint and gunpoint during the horrific ordeal.

Believing she was tied up securely, she slipped her bonds and ran but was captured and dragged back before being beaten again and tied up even tighter and told if she tried to run away again she would be killed.

Her husband David told his torturers they had no money but were Christian’s building a community on their farm.

But they appeared to have knowledge of a safe and after threatening to kill all three Mr Vorster, who is a tenant on the smallholding, relented and took them to his own safe where he gave them R40,000 in cash (£2,300).

They also took a shotgun, two rifles, a pistol and a collection of hunting knives from the safe.

While they were searching the smallholding they did not realise that Brenda – realising they were distracted – had slipped her bonds a second time and jumped down a steep 9ft bank at the rear of the house in the pitch black.

She ran through the darkness tearing her clothes and skin on thorns and jagged rocks risking death from snakes in the darkness until she was half a mile away and felt safe enough not to be found by her vicious attackers.

The gang left, stealing David’s Toyota Hilux station wagon leaving him and his close friend Shaun tied up and in agony on the floor.

Shaun somehow managed to struggle to a nearby house where he raised the alarm and police freed both men before finding Brenda in the dark calling out for help.

Nothing could be done for Brenda’s older sister Heila whose body lay where she fell in the back garden of the smallholding.

The horror of the senseless attack last Monday just outside Stilbaai in the Western Cape a four hour drive from Cape Town has spread through the close knit South African farming community.

Many accuse politicians and police of turning a blind eye to the savage nature of the attacks on the mainly white farming community which include extreme torture and gang rape and up to 70 brutal murders a year.

Mr Thomas, from Effingham, Surrey, emigrated to Cape Town after meeting his South African soulmate Brenda while he was working in Dubai as an engineer and she was a teacher.
