The 47-year-old shared a post to his Facebook on Wednesday confirming he had returned home with his two children.

His wife remains in hospital after sustaining serious lacerations to her arm. 

Mr Kefu wrote: “Wow. Humbling to see the outpouring of love and well wishes from family, friends, community members and the general public.

“We are all doing well. Josh, Madi and myself are out of hospital and we’re hoping Rach will be able to join us tomorrow.

Two male teenagers have been charged for the assault.

A 15-year-old has been charged with four counts of attempted murder, three counts of grievous bodily harm and one count each of unlawful use of a motor vehicle, break and enter, burglary and deprivation of liberty.

Another 13-year-old boy was also charged on Tuesday.

He was refused bail and will appear at the Brisbane Children’s Court on Friday. 

A third male teenager is also in custody. 

The police believe the home invasion was non-targeted.
