The nature of the illness is yet to be identified.
Gainchi’s death comes two days after the demise of another ward representative.
On Wednesday, it was reported that Kiambu MCA Cyrus Omondi was found dead in his hotel room in India.
Details emerged that Omondi suffered a heart attack while on an official trip.
Further information indicated that the untimely tragedy of the Kahawa-Wendayi representative had a foul play in it.
His colleagues who were part of the Mumbai trip, are claimed to have switched off their phones after the incident.
Julies Taki, Witeithie MCA, noted that he learnt of the news through social media.
Omondi’s family, however, came out and disregarded claims that that the politician was sick.
The Jubilee party member’s mother Millicent Achieng explained that Omondi had never had any health complications.
She reiterated that the postmortem will reveal the real cause of death.
The deceased was held in high regards for his efforts in improving the area.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto sent condolences messages to the family of the bereaved.
Ruto on his part described the fallen leader as a man who was loyal to the party.
“Saddened by the passing on of Kahawa Wendani MCA Cyrus Omondi (popularly known as Gearbox) while on training in India.
“He was a dedicated servant to his people and the ruling party,” remarked the DP.
