Sickle Cell Anaemia (SCA) is a serious inherited blood disorder where the red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body develop abnormally. The mathematical dynamics of the disease remain poorly understood, as such this paper investigates the mathematical inheritance pattern of the disease by the application of Monte Carlos simulation technique which is a complementary approach to physical simulation Smith’s statistical package was used as random number generator in which the simulated birth from different mating indicates that SS has an average of 2.4% neonates, AS has 29.9% and AA has 67.7%. We thus, conclude that eradication of SCA is not visible. However, curative measure of SCA remains paramount.
