What has been reported in Ethiopian media is that Uganda has received US financial support to train TPLF combatants and has assigned top generals for this purpose. It is known that large numbers of TPLF agents have relocated to Uganda from various African nations. Whether this TPLF agents are being prepared for regime change operations in Ethiopia or Eritrea is what is not known yet. I am sure that the Eritrean government, with a large presence of its agents in Uganda, should be very well-informed about this supposedly US-backed operation. if Museveni is involved, it also shows the involvement of his handlers: the British Government.
All the indications on the ground in Tigray are such that the TPLF is weakened and not in a position to launch attacks and start another war. It has lost tens of thousands of fighters deployed as human waves whose bodies are now decaying and enriching the soils of Afar and Wollo. The human costs the people of Tigray are paying are exorbitant and not affordable. They are realizing that the children of the TPLF leaders are in the west and leading luxurious lives spending money looted/stolen from the Ethiopian tax payers.
