Pretoria, South Africa – Ponty Thuynsma (76) was confronted by 4 attackers on his smallholding in Tweedracht, east of Pretoria on Sunday evening.

The savages poured an entire can of petrol down his throat and threatened to set him on fire in an effort to get the keys to his safe.

They then brutally tortured him with a hot iron for hours severely injuring the elderly man.

They eventually found the safe keys, stole 4 firearms and fled.

Despite being tortured for several hours, Thuynsma whispered through his burnt lips and swollen tongue that he is still not afraid of them.

Thuynsma had to be admitted to the intensive care unit of the Wilgers hospital.
