KUNMING -- The Party chief of Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, was sacked on Saturday over corruption suspicions just eight months after his predecessor was removed for the same reason.

The Yunnan Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China fired Gao Jinsong after China's top anti-graft body announced it was investigating him for alleged "serious violation of Party discipline and the law".

Gao assumed the position in August, after then Kunming Party chief Zhang Tianxin was sacked for "serious violation of Party discipline".
