Thousands of South Africans have taken to Twitter to appeal to the government to provide answers and action over gender-based violence in SA.

The murders of three women have come under the spotlight in the past few days.

Tshegofatso Pule, who was pregnant, was stabbed and found hanging from a tree in Roodepoort, Johannesburg.

Naledi Phangindawo was hacked to death with an axe in KwaNonqaba, Mossel Bay. A 34-year-old man handed himself over to police.

A 36-year-old man was arrested in Mthatha after allegedly stabbing his girlfriend to death and dumping her body in a veld.

The woman's body was discovered by a passer-by.
